It'll cost $4,000, but Vulcan Town Council has decided to spend the money to update their "Starfleet Uniforms."

The Mayor and Council wear them to a lot of official functions as part of Vulcan's role as the "Star Trek Capital of Canada."

Mayor Tom Grant says they got 20 years out of the old one's and says if they can do that again this time it's money well spent.

"That's what we believe, you know we get a lot of use out of them through parades and other events we go to. We always try to wear them to the AUMA Conference and other events that we need to dress up for. I think it's a great investment and a great advertising tool for our community."

Grant says they've found someone in Vulcan willing to do the work, so the money stays local, which he says is a huge bonus.
