On Thursday, Nov. 20, Sheboygan Falls Police Chief Steve Riffel, along with SFPD Deputy Chief Steve Ross and Sheboygan Falls Mayor Randy Meyer, paid a special visit to Sheboygan Chevrolet Chrysler to graciously accept the donation of a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS.

Riffel said the vehicle will serve a variety of purposes for the SFPD.

“This is an all-wheel drive vehicle that we had a great need for in the department,” Riffel said. “In bad weather, sometimes things can get complicated in getting where we need to go and having this vehicle really helps out a lot.

“We plan to use it as a multipurpose type of vehicle,” he said. “We will be using it quite often, especially as part of our tactical unit.”

Steve Romanoski said the donation is part of Sheboygan Chevrolet

Chrysler’s continuing commitment to supporting the community.

“We have helped out a number of community organizations in Sheboygan County since we took over in 1991,” Romanoski said. “We’ve donated vehicles and lent support to the DARE program in Sheboygan, Horizon4Girls, the Sheboygan Children’s Museum, Camp Y-Koda and the Books on Wheels program among others.

“We probably do donations like this two to three times a year,” he said. “One of our main goals is to give back to the community. This donation to the Sheboygan Falls Police Department is a part of that commitment to helping others.”

The 2006 Chevrolet Suburban is the third such vehicle Sheboygan Chevrolet Chrysler has donated to the SFPD over the past six years.

“In 2008, I had talked with Randy Romanoski about a vehicle for our K-9 unit,” SFPD Deputy Chief Steve Ross said. “As the results of those discussions, they decided to donate a Chevy van to our department. It has been a really good partnership over the past few years. We are now on our third vehicle from Sheboygan Chevy.”

In times when finances are especially tight for local municipalities, Riffel expressed his deep gratitude for the generous donation.

“Sheboygan Chevy has been a great partner for us for the past six years,” Riffel said. “We are dealing with challenging financial times for city governments, so having them step up like this and provide us with a much-needed piece of equipment is very much appreciated.”

Ross noted that the department’s new Suburban will be on display for all to see as the lead vehicle in the Main Street Memories Holiday Parade this Saturday, Dec. 6, in downtown Sheboygan Falls.
