LYNDONVILLE – The Orleans County Legislature has agreed to donate a 2013 Chevy Tahoe road patrol vehicle to the Village of Lyndonville’s police department.

The vehicle was determined to have no value to the county and has been declared surplus.

However, Lyndonville wants to replace a patrol car with 350,000 miles “at least,” said Mayor John Belson.

The village operates a part-time police department with Bill Larkin, a retired deputy sheriff, as the officer. He works about 20 to 24 hours a week.

Belson said the village couldn’t justify spending $30,000 or more for a new patrol car.

“We really appreciate it,” he said about the county donating the Chevy Tahoe.
