CATOOSA COUNTY, GA (Times Free Press) -- This time next year, half of the Catoosa County (Ga.) Sheriff's Office patrol cars will have more than 100,000 miles on their odometers, newly elected Sheriff Gary Sisk said.
That's why Sisk is hoping the Catoosa County Commission will ask the county's voters in 2014 to dedicate part of a proposed special purpose local option sales tax to buying new cruisers. The sheriff's office bought only four cars this past year, he said.
"We're way behind," Sisk said. "We need to be buying 10, 15 cars per year."
Catoosa commissioners will hold an all-day work session Tuesday to discuss renewing the 1-cent-per-dollar sales tax. The meeting starts at 8:30 a.m. in the Conference Room at the Catoosa Colonnade.
