County deals for 2 loaders

After a third consultation with G.W. Van Keppel representatives, the county commission decided on a plan Monday to obtain two front loaders.

The county will purchase one Volvo L90G front loader for three annual payments of $33,584.44, with a residual $100,000 balance, and will rent another loader of the same type for payments of $1,850 over a six-month period from late spring to early winter.

The initial proposal was for the county to rent two loaders, which would have maintenance paid for by the rental company, but the commission found a way to fill its desire to own a loader, and have access to another one during busier seasons, without paying full purchase price for both.
