NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCBB: SRCO) today announced that Essex Fells, NJ, has become the most recent jurisdiction to join the growing number of municipalities across the country that are utilizing Sparta's Municipal Lease Program for the acquisition of their essential equipment. Essex Fells is the fifth New Jersey municipal agency—including the City of Newark—to join the ranks that have selected the Sparta Municipal Program to acquire the Harley-Davidson police motorcycles they require.
Sparta's Municipal Lease Program is becoming increasingly popular among towns, cities, and other government entities throughout the United States as an alternative to the traditional "all cash up-front" method of acquiring their necessary equipment. The emerging preference for the Sparta program lies in the fact that it enables these governmental agencies to pay the cost of equipment over time and avoid the burden of having to place additional strains on limited annual budgets. This is of critical value to these jurisdictions in these already difficult economic times.
Commenting on the transaction, Lieutenant Donald Allen of the Essex Fells Police Department said, "This is our first experience with Sparta's Municipal Lease division and I can report that the entire process went smoother and easier than we could have hoped. We will consider Sparta for future leasing needs as well."
Paul McGlynn, Operations Manager at Liberty Harley-Davidson in Rahway, NJ, which is the vendor that supplied the motorcycles for this and another Sparta transaction, added, "Working with Sparta's Municipal Lease professionals is definitely a pleasure. They have a keen understanding of our needs, and they consistently make the transactions as simple and straightforward as possible."
In closing, Anthony Havens, Sparta's CEO, said, "Every time we're able to help these critical agencies meet their equipment needs in a more economical way, we take special pride in accomplishing the task. Not only do these local governments deserve to have the newest and most reliable equipment available, they also deserve to have the most cost-effective means possible to meet their equipment needs and we know that we're providing that for them."
