MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Another eco-friendly fleet is hitting the streets in Bibb County, but these vehicles are a lot smaller.
The Bibb County Green Team and Bibb County Commission unveiled its eight new, electric utility vehicles. The Bad Boy electric utility vehicles are a newer, smaller addition to the county vehicles. Like this other fleet, this one is also 100% electric and can be charged at the Bibb County electric charging station. Several county departments will receive one including the recreation department and the property department.
Macon-Bibb Parks and Recreation manager Ben Hamrick can't wait for his department to get the new ride. In October, Hamrick was able to test drive one of the buggies at the Luke Bryan concert in Macon. With an estimated 20,000 concert goers, Hamrick said the small size allowed officers to access places they wouldn't have been able to get to before.
