New Mower Purchased For Hammonds Park

Hammonds Park.

Prior to yesterday’s Council meeting Village Administrator Thom Edgell “modeled” the new mower recently purchase.  The mower will replace the cash draining old one previously used for Hammonds Park. 

The tractor is a 2005 Massey Ferguson with only 500 hours on it.  It was purchased from Vernon Dell for $5,700. 

During the Council meeting an ordinance was approved to transfer $50,000 from the General Fund to the Capital Improvement Fund.     When asked, Finance Committee Chairwoman Diane Dinch noted the transfer was intended for several items that need attention.  Several of them, such as this newer, dependable mower, have been neglected in times past due the lack of funds available. 

Sorry for the over exposure on the photo,  That sun light was a killer yesterday...
