LFD to transfer $365,000 to LPD

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_The council approved the transfer of $365,000 from the Lawton Fire Department's account to the Lawton Police Department.

The decision followed a dispute in a city hall meeting last month when an outside contractor accused the city's fire department of rigging their bidding system for two new fire trucks.

The council  decided to start the process over delaying their decision until after the end of the fiscal year. 

Instead of allowing the money to sit unused, the city decided to transfer the money to the city's police department that would allow for the purchase of twenty two new patrol vehicles.
