In January of 2023, John Lockwood, Public Works Director, was able to find a supplier for a different brand of utility vehicle and also obtain tractor attachment quotes for grounds maintenance equipment. This supplier is Land& Coates, and their quotes are a little lower than the John Deere products originally requested. They have equipment available and should be able to meet the purchasing deadline for this fiscal year. The prices are as follows:
RTV (utility vehicle) $26,000
Heavy duty 60” cutter $ 2,625
Box blade $ 975
72-inch finish mower $ 4,175
Total requested $33,775 USDA Rural Development, if the application is approved, would fund these purchases with an $11,821 grant and a $21,954 five-year term loan.
- Town Manager Contract Renewal – Town Council will review and vote to renew Town Manager Hozey’s contract.
