Many Mayor Ken Freeman and the city street and cleanup crews are pleased with the new Kubota Excavator recently purchased and now being used throughout town.

The equipment cost $55,000 and was paid for entirely through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Not one cent of city money was directed toward the purchase because funding was through the USDA grant.

The excavator was purchased locally from  Patrick-Miller Tractor which had the lowest bid for the large versatile equipment.

The excavator will be used for excavating buried water lines, digging for water leaks, and cleaning out ditches as well as other uses. It also has a jackhammer with it as an attachment.

Mayor Freeman is extremely pleased with its purchase because the excavator was purchased locally and did not cost the city any money since the USDA grant paid the entire cost.

“We regularly seek out grants that will help us improve and purchase new equipment to use  in our town, and this excavator is a good example of how we strive to do our best in securing grants for these purposes,” said Freeman.
