KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Hawaii County has begun replacing its high-mileage government vehicles.
West Hawaii Today says the county bought 23 passenger vehicles during the fiscal year that ended in June.
Officials say the total cost for the purchases was $690,000.
County finance director Nancy Crawford says 11 of the vehicles were used cars purchased from state surplus and at a local auto auction.
Four of the vehicles were funded by state grants.
Crawford says the vehicles being replaced will be sold at a county auction. She says 26 vehicles or vehicle parts will be sold in all.
