Ruston city vehicles are now sporting Louisiana Tech University license plates on the front license frames. The first of the plates were attached to the 200-plus vehicle fleet on Thursday. Mayor Ronny Walker said the university is Ruston’s largest economic driver and the city wants to fully partner with the institution. He said displaying the university logo is one way for the city to show its support. The Ruston Fire Department rescue unit, a utility bucket truck and an ambulance were the first vehicles to get the new tags.
