The city lightened their load Monday night, selling off two old trucks and a hydraulic arm.
An old fire truck went for $2,000 to Tom Russett, the city’s old dump truck goes to Salois Construction for $1,750 and a hydraulic unit went to Matt Fowler for $100.
There was some discussion on accepting the bids that came in lower than the city expected. However, Mayor John Shevlin noted that there was a fire truck in Clyde Park, “that is yours for the taking, just go get it.” Eventually it was felt the city should accept the bids, which they did.
