Council Approves New Equipment Purchases

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Casper City Council has signed off on several equipment upgrades for the city’s leisure and public service departments.

Council, by an 8-0 margin, authorized nearly $120,000 in new vehicle purchases on Tuesday night. Ward II councilman Paul Meyer was not in attendance.

Overall, councilors agreed to purchase a $14,000 all-terrain vehicle and a $13,500 snowmobile for Hogadon Ski Area and a $90,000 dump truck for the parks division of the city’s public services department.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says there’s a need for the new equipment.

“What’s special about these vehicles is that it truly is necessary for (city workers) to (have these vehicles) to carry out the duties of their job, and it makes us a lot more efficient,” Schlager said.

The ATV and snowmobile purchases will be funded through Hogadon’s capital replacement budget. The new dump truck will be paid for through one-cent funds.

All three vehicles will replace existing units. Hogadon’s old ATV and snowmobile will be placed in the city’s next surplus auction.
