CANTON — St. Lawrence County legislators unanimously passed a resolution during Monday’s Finance Committee meeting authorizing the purchase of a new mobile command center vehicle.

The county owns a 2008 Winnebago used as a unified command vehicle for major emergencies, but the life of the vehicle is nearing expiration. The county has sought opportunities to fund a replacement vehicle with updated technology.

Common sense

What!! There is so many law enforcement agencies and personal available. State has these command vehicles right? This county can not afford this. Sheriffs dept has enough. This is bad management and Bigwarf trying to make them like LA county sheriff. Shame on you legislatures


With a 19.4% poverty rate just what SLC needs, a $639K vehicle that other than being a static display at the county fair will rarely get used.
