Sparta Commercial Welcomes Barnwell County, SC to Its Municipal Lease Program

Tuesday, Oct 27, 2015

New York, NY., Oct. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCO) today announced that Barnwell County, South Carolina Carolina has become the latest jurisdiction to join the increasing number of municipalities as a client of Sparta's Municipal Lease Program. With its acquisition of four new Dodge Charger police vehicles, Barnwell County is now the sixth South Carolina agency utilizing the Sparta Municipal Program to meet its essential equipment needs, joining other Sparta clients such as the cities of Charlotte, Greenville, and Raleigh.

The principal value of Sparta's Municipal Lease Program for municipalities across the country is that instead of having to purchase their vehicles or other essential and expensive equipment and paying the entire cost up front, the Sparta Lease enables these agencies to spread the cost over several years, thereby avoiding large capital outlays in a given budget year. This is the major attraction to the Sparta program for towns and cities that are struggling with restrictive budgets and looking for ways to acquire the important equipment they need without large, up-front expenditures.

Anthony Havens, Sparta's CEO, said, "We're excited to add yet another municipality in South Carolina to our roster of Municipal Lease clients, and we're pleased that Barnwell County chose Sparta as the financing source to meet their critical needs. Once again, a forward thinking jurisdiction recognized that our Municipal Lease Program is a smart, economical way to acquire essential equipment."
