Let there be salt...and two new trucks to spread it!

We can all rest a little easier knowing our streets will be salted this winter. Council passed an ordinance Tuesday night authorizing Safety/Service Director Geers to advertise and contract for roughly 2,000 tons of salt. But that’s not all - two of the four dump trucks the city owns need to be replaced, so council passed another ordinance authorizing Mr. Geers to contract for two new trucks under the state bid purchase program. The total price is not to exceed $170,000 plus interest, and they are to be purchased on a lease/purchase plan to keep the cash outlay at a minimum.
