CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Division of Natural Resources says it will save the state more than a half-million dollars by cutting 84 vehicles from its fleet.

Director Stephen McDaniel said in a news release Thursday that the cuts, which will start immediately and continue through the year, represent a 14 percent reduction in the fleet.

The reduction is expected to bring in nearly $500,000 from sale of the vehicles, as well as an extra $150,000 savings in fuel, maintenance and insurance costs.

McDaniel says the cuts will not affect the DNR’s operational capabilities.

More than 200 cars have been eliminated from the state’s entire vehicle fleet since January.
