After rejecting the option for years, the Clarence Town Board is considering leasing light duty work vehicles and small transportation vans instead of buying new ones.
Highway Superintendent James A. Dussing said at the board's meeting Wednesday that the town has 21 vehicles it tries to replace on a revolving three-year cycle. But even with the trade-in, the town will not be able to afford a new senior van next year, he said.
Enterprise Fleets, which has proposed leasing vehicles to the town, is appraising the town's current vehicles to determine their trade-in value.
Dussing said obtaining newer vehicles would free up his maintenance crew to work on the town's plows and construction vehicles.
