With the addition of the $27,478 vehicle, the Hatboro Borough Council is looking to sell three 10-year-old police vehicles on Municibid - an online auction of government items ranging from automotive, furniture, parking meters, computers, seasonal items for snow and leaf removal and lots of miscellaneous items in between.
