Walnut to buy new backhoe
WALNUT — The Walnut Village Board voted to purchase a new backhoe for the village maintenance department.
Carl Minks, village superintendent, had previously presented to the board a request to consider the purchase of a new backhoe. After earlier discussions, the board had asked Minks to obtain bids on what a new backhoe would cost. He was also asked to provide information on the charges for the repairs needed for the 1997 model currently owned by the village.
Minks was able to provide both the initial cost of repairs and also the cost of a new backhoe. General repairs on the 1997 backhoe would be in excess of $34,000, and that estimate does not include repairs to the engine which could bring that total up by several thousand dollars. It would also cost the village approximately $4,400 to rent a replacement backhoe for the time the necessary repairs were being completed.
