Two Supervisors have driven up and down the North Fork in a black Ford Crown Victoria— first Josh Horton and now Scott Russell.
But the 10-year-old car is "done," according to mechanic Teddy Griffin at in Mattituck. Repairs to the 10-year-old car have exceeded its value.
"The reason it got deadlined is because it needs a new intake manifold," he said. "And to fix that you have to change the whole top of the motor."
The Town Board is advertising for bids for a new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4, or a similar model. At Tuesday's work session, models such as the Ford Escape and the Ford Focus were also suggested.
What do you think would fit the supervisor the best as a replacement vehicle in 2012? An SUV or a smaller, more fuel-efficient car? Would it bother you to see the Town purchase a foreign car if it was the best deal?
