ORISKANY, N.Y. -- In an effort to save Oneida County some money this upcoming budget year, the sheriff's office has signed a deal with Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
The new deal has already been approved and is slated to save the county around $1 million over the course of 10 years.
Instead of buying a small number of new cars each buying period, they will be renting a larger number of cars for a cheaper price. Specifically, instead of only getting 8 to 10 new cars, they will be leasing 37.
Sheriff Maciol says that they will not only be saving money on sticker costs, but other costs as well.
"Not only by getting rid of our cars when they're much younger, getting more re-sale value from them, our maintenance costs will go down. So that's why this plan with Enterprise-Rent-A-Car will save Oneida County over $1 million in a 10-year period,” Maciol said.
This new plan will replace the sheriff's office's entire fleet in just 4 years, as opposed to 10 years previously, and it will ensure both savings and safety for the county.
