Trumbull officials take steps to convert county vehicles to compressed natural gas

WARREN

The Trumbull County commissioners and county engineer’s office have committed to spending $250,000 each over the next two years to convert county vehicles from gasoline to compressed natural gas.

They have also authorized Randy Smith, engineer, to apply for a $750,000 grant through the state’s 2014 Capital Budget to construct a county-owned compressed natural gas fueling station at the county engineer’s facility on North River Road.

The county has a vertical gas well at the engineer’s office that can be tapped to provide the fuel, said Commissioner Paul Heltzel.

“We know there would be substantial savings” if county vehicles were converted to compressed natural gas, especially if the gas came from a county-owned well, Heltzel said.
