The municipal administration of Caguas acquired 28 new vehicles for its fleet during 2023 at an investment of about $2.2 million, most of it coming from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, Caguas Mayor William Miranda Torres announced Tuesday.
Of those funds, the largest investment – of about $1.7 million in 16 vehicles – was for the areas under the umbrella of safety and security in the Municipal Police Department and the Municipal Office of Emergency Management and Municipal Medical Emergencies.
Other areas that received vehicles were: Recreation and Sports, Finance, Building Conservation, Purchases and Auctions, Municipal Public Works and the Mayor’s Office.
“Fulfilling our responsibility and commitment, we have invested in this new fleet of vehicles that are intended for direct service to citizens,” Miranda Torres said. “We continue to invest in more and better resources that allow us to maximize, modernize and be more efficient in the provision of our services.”
