City hopes to auction police car

NORWICH – A City of Norwich police car, which currently has over 96,000 miles on it, may soon be auctioned off to provide revenue for additional police equipment.

At April’s meeting of the City of Norwich Finance / Personnel Committee, Police and Fire Chief Joseph Angelino told the committee he would like the patrol car, which currently has 96,352 miles, to be declared surplus property so the department could sell the vehicle on the Internet auction site E-Bay.
