Earlier this year, the Town applied for SEP (Supplemental Environmental Project) funds through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. These funds are made available through violation fines assessed by the State against companies who operate in Colorado. All of the applications are based on local governments using these funds to reduce pollution or increase public safety, among other categories. The Town had several gasoline powered vehicles which were older and in need of replacement. Instead of buying new combustible engine vehicles, the Town acquired an all-electric utility vehicle which will serve as a direct replacement for other trucks taken out of the fleet. This will not only save money on the vehicle cost, but also will reduce fuel expenses while serving as a model for working electric vehicles in local government. The best part is, there was no direct cost to the Town. Again, Kersey is ahead of the curve!
