CAYUGA—On Monday, June 7, 2021 Haldimand County unveiled the newest components of their vehicle fleet with the addition of two electric cars.

The cars were purchased from a company in Otterville, Ontario at a cost of approximately $35,000 funded through the Haldimand County Vibrancy Fund.

“We’re trying this as a pilot to see how it works out,” said Mayor Ken Hewitt. “It was an opportunity to try to see if we can change our fleet to be a little more green and to take advantage of some of the opportunities that are happening through changing regulations.”
