Local Florida newspaper the Sun-Sentinel recently reported that Hollywood City commissioners have approved the purchase of 10 Toyota Prius hybrids, five hybrid Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup trucks and three compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered Silverado 1500 pickup trucks.

According to the paper, the new vehicles, which cost a total of $448,715, increase the number of alternative fuel vehicles to 31 percent of the city's 155-vehicle fleet.

The Sun-Sentinel noted that the Priuses are slated for use by code enforcement officers and parking officials, while the hybrid and CNG-powered trucks will be delivered to the Public Works Department.
