Jul 19 2012 - 12:35pm

BOUNTIFUL -- The city council has approved the purchase of 46 new tasers for use by the Bountiful Police Department.

The purchase came with a total price of $56,013 after the department traded in old equipment for a total savings of $13,800, according to Chief Tom Ross.

Ross said the old tasers were showing their age in regard to failed firings and frequent repair costs. Funding for the new equipment is included in the 2012-13 fiscal year budget, which began July 1.
