Electric Cars Added to Henderson Fleet

Electric Cars Added to Henderson Fleet

 

City of Henderson officials hope to save close to $20,000 in fuel costs through the purchase of two new electric vehicles for their motor pool.

A Ford Focus and a Chevy Volt will be added to a fleet already operating 95 percent of non-emergency fleet operating on alternative fuels, according to city officials.

The cars recharge in about four hours using less than $2 in electricity from a 120-volt household outlet and have a mileage rating equivalent to more than 100 MPG. The cars are expected to save $9,700 each in fuel costs over the next five years.

Workforce reductions and the motor pool have allowed the city to reduce its fleet by 120 vehicles since 2009. The city’s motor pool was created in April 2010 to cut fleet costs and increase efficiency by rotating vehicles to employees throughout the workday.

Four Businesses Fail Alcohol Compliance Check

 

Four Henderson businesses sold alcohol to minors last weekend in the police department’s latest sting operation.

Police officers conducted compliance checks at 78 convenience stores, grocery stores and liquor stores throughout the city of Henderson early Sunday. Of the 78 establishments, 74 did not sell alcohol to the underage person.

The businesses that failed were:

  • CVS, 1551 W. Sunset Road
  • Green Valley Grocery, 902 S. Boulder Highway
  • Lee’s Discount Liquor, 4427 E. Sunset Road
  • Whole Foods, 100 S. Green Valley Parkway

The clerks are subject to a citation for serving an underage person and face a maximum penalty of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. The owners or managers of a business that fails a second or third time can also be issued a citation and could face the revocation of their business license. Businesses that fail an alcohol compliance check generally are rechecked at some time in the future.
