As temperatures continue to soar and wildfires rage out of control in parts of the country, the City Council of Pasadena in California voted to hold a $672,512 purchase order for gasoline-powered vehicles, so that zero-emission vehicles may be considered for the same purposes.
A three-year fleet replacement plan is being implemented to address the city’s ageing fleet. At the same time, wildfires have been a noticeable issue in the state over the past years, while the consensus to phase out fossil-fuel powered vehicles is slowly growing there.
“Please don’t embarrass the many scientists and engineers living in Pasadena by investing in gasoline powered SUVs,” said local Beth Fabrinsky. “Show Pasadena for the future-thinking home of technology and science that she is and go electric.”
