ADAMS, Mass. — Selectman Edward MacDonald and Police Chief Donald Poirot faced off at the Selectmen's meeting over the future of the police department's fleet of cruisers — with MacDonald insisting on switching to the slightly cheaper and more fuel-efficient Chevrolet Impala and Poirot wanting to stick with the tried and tested Ford Crown Victoria.

By night's end, the board — with the exception of Joseph R. Dean Jr. who recused himself because his son is an Adams police officer — voted 2-1 to purchase two new Impalas for the department. Selectman Donald Sommer cast the "no" vote.
