Chino Valley Fire District has replaced an aging battalion chief's vehicle with a new one, and did it for $12,000 less than budgeted. The district started by selecting a 2013 model Chevrolet Tahoe SUV, which CVFD spokesman Rob Zazueta said avoided price increases for 2014 and 2015 models.

The Tahoe, a police package model, is less expensive than previous three-quarter ton, V-10 engine pickups the department used, and will get better fuel mileage, Zazueta said. The Tahoe has more emergency lighting and reflective striping to meet new safety standards.

Awkward English much? An aging battalion chief's vehicle??? Shouldn't they be more concerned with replacing the aging battalion chief than his vehicle?? *sigh* It pains me that Americans are so utterly incapable of utilizing their own language correctly.

This would be great news if the $12k was being returned to the taxpayers. As it stands they are bragging about saving us money, yet they will still spend every last dime. Nice try..
