Saginaw sheriff dumping military vehicle made fun of by HBO comedy show | MLive.com

The vehicle that the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Department received free of charge earlier this year from the U.S. Army was shown in a motorist’s March 2014 Youtube video driving on a Saginaw street. The clip shows something a Saginaw County resident will only see again if they catch the vehicle driving out of town, Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said Monday, Aug. 18. “I made the decision about a month ago to decommission that vehicle,” Federspiel said, noting he did it based on financial concerns due to unforeseen maintenance costs.While the military was to provide any needed parts, Federspiel said he still had to pay for a specialized mechanic to install the parts, along with insurance and fuel for the vehicle. When Saginaw County Commissioners asked him to look for cost-saving measures before setting the budget in July, the MRAP was the first thing to go, he said.
