Cattaraugus County’s saving about $400,000 this year by leasing 31 vehicles instead of buying them.
The vehicles range from ¾ ton pickup trucks for the Public Works Department to a van for the Department of the Aging
to Sheriff’s Department police interceptors. The leases are for up to five years
In addition to lower lease payments, the county will save money on maintenance costs that come with high-mileage older vehicles.
