2 Million Could Go to Distant Car Dealership

On Monday El Paso County Commissioners are scheduled to vote whether to pay more than two million dollars for a fleet of 60 Sheriff's Office SUV's. The low bid in a recent competitive bid process came in from Caldwell County Ford, a dealership hundreds of miles away between Austin and Bryan/College Station. Some commsisioners, most vocally Sergio Lewis, believe the county would be better served by choosing a slightly higher bid from a local dealership, so that the two million dollar expenditure can  circulate within the Borderland economy.
