County Selects Financing for 21 Vehicles

 Laurens County Council was advised this week of the winning bid to fund the purchase of 21 new vehicles for use by county employees. Council was advised Tuesday evening that BB&T Financial was chosen to provide funds for the purchases. BB&T reportedly offered the best deal with a three-year loan at 1.2% interest, a rate that was lower than had been expected. Council Chairman Jim Coleman said “We tried our best to purchase the vehicles from local dealers.” Of the 21 vehicles being purchased, 8 SUVs, 6 pick-up trucks and one sedan is being purchased from dealers in Laurens County.
