A special meeting was called by the Norris City Village Board to discuss the purchase of a 2014 Dodge Ram 1500. The truck was offered to the Norris City police department by White County Ford for $15,000. Sold by a private owner, the truck was in great condition for purchase. It has enough room for police equipment, so the Norris City police department plans to transfer all gear from an old Dodge Durango into the new Dodge to save money.

The purchase of the Dodge Ram was unanimously approved.

Norris City’s next meeting is regularly scheduled for Dec 3 at 7 p.m. in the Norris City Municipal Building.
