New York, NY, May 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCO) today announced that the city of Garden Grove, CA has become the latest jurisdiction to join the company's Municipal Lease Program with the acquisition of new BMW police motorcycles through the Sparta program.
Sparta's Municipal Lease Program fills an important financing void for cities, towns, states, and counties that have a strong need to acquire a variety of essential equipment. The Sparta program allows governmental agencies to lease over a number of years, rather than purchase that equipment, and thereby reduce the strain on their capital budgets. The program provides a more cost-effective opportunity for municipalities to get the necessary equipment they need while economic circumstances demand greater frugality by governments at all levels. The Sparta Municipal Lease Program can accommodate nearly every type of asset class, including -- in addition to police motorcycles -- surveillance equipment, fire and emergency equipment, police cruisers, tactical and utility vehicles, and virtually any type of equipment considered essential by local or state agencies.
David Diaz, General Manager of Irv Seaver Motorcycles in Orange, CA, the dealer providing the motorcycles for this transaction, said, "We take pride in working with our local police agencies and when Garden Grove requested a lease-purchase option we were able to contact Sparta Commercial to provide the financing. This is our first time working with Sparta Commercial and our first time working through this type of municipal lease and the folks at Sparta were helpful, available, and easy to work with. They took care of the financing and left the motorcycle sales to us. We're pleased and hope to do more business like this in the future."
