My Town Belding: New equipment approved for Department of Public Works

BELDING, Mich.— Belding’s Department of Public Works is getting new equipment to tend to public areas.

During their meeting last month, the city council approved purchasing a John Deere Gator HPX, John Deere 310K backhoe, an IHC 5 yard plow truck and a Ford F550 water/sewer truck for no more than $330,000.  The only dissenting vote came from council member Cooper, who said he would like to hear more from the community before moving ahead with the purchase.  Cooper also said the city should operate like a business and stagger equipment purchases.

Calls for equipment upgrades began after the city’s backhoe caught fire.
