Municipal Lease

GM Financial’s Municipal Lease is the right choice for financing the vehicles you need for your municipality. This financing option allows a public entity to purchase essential-use vehicles by making lease payments over the useful life of the asset. The payments under a lease program are subject to annual budgetary appropriation and are typically included as a line item in the operating budget and not considered debt.
