ABILENE, Texas — The Abilene City Council is setting aside roughly $227,000 to purchase an armored vehicle for the Abilene Police Department.

The funds are part of more than $5 million generated by higher than expected sales tax revenues, roofing permits and costsaving measures from last fiscal year.

The council Thursday told Police Chief Stan Standridge the department could pursue the purchase of the armored vehicle, something Standridge said has been on his wish list for a while.
