VERNON, Vt. (AP) - Three cruisers are among the items being prepared for sale that belonged to the former police department in Vernon, Vermont.

County sheriffs are now patrolling the town after residents voted to disband their police department in May, a budget-cutting measure. Vernon is the home of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, which is shutting down at the end of the year. The town is facing a significant loss of tax revenue.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) selectboard members are preparing to accept bids for the items through the Vermont League of Cities & Towns.

Also being offered are numerous surplus emergency radios, portable radios carried by officers and mobile radios that had been installed in cars.
