LaFOLLETTE—City leaders approved purchasing a 2014 Ford Explorer from Rainbow Ford for City Administrator Billie Russell.
The Explorer costs $29,636—$2,364 less than the $32,000 that was budgeted for it.
Council member Bob Fannon asked council member Stephanie Grimm—who made a motion to purchase the vehicle—to specify who could use the Explorer.
Grimm amended her motion to only allow city employees and those appointed by Russell to drive it. Grimm’s motion passed with only council member Hansford Hatmaker voting against it.
