NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCO) today announced that Elgin, South Carolina, has become the most recent jurisdiction to join the growing number of local governments that are turning to Sparta's Municipal Lease Program for the acquisition of their essential equipment, particularly the updating of their police vehicles.
The increasing trend toward the Sparta program among municipalities around the country is due to the opportunity to pay for the necessary equipment over time, through the Sparta lease, rather than in an up-front lump sum. This gives local governments greater flexibility as they decide on departmental allocations, something that is an understandable preference in a time of tight budgets and fiscal constraints.
Harold Brown, Elgin's Chief of Police, added, "I was very impressed not just with the Sparta program, which is a great financing alternative for us, but also with their staff who walked us through the transaction quickly and easily."
In addition to police cruisers and motorcycles, the Sparta Municipal Lease Program can accommodate virtually any type of materiel required by most jurisdictions, including trucks and busses, fire and EMS vehicles, surveillance systems and ambulances, and even tactical vehicles. Further information about the Sparta Municipal Lease Program is available at www.spartamunicipal.com, or by calling 800-882-0778.
