GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

After months of delays, the Guntersville City Council has approved the purchase of a Marine Police boat.

The city will pay around $40,000 and in exchange, receive a nearly half-million dollar boat equipped with hazardous materials detection equipment.

City officials said it will also be used to aid in basic police functions and search and rescue. Mayor Leigh Dollar said she hoped it will be delivered by the end of the summer.
