HORTON HOLDS OFF ON BACKHOE PURCHASE

It's a major investment and Horton Council wants to give their Public Works Manager an opportunity to weigh-in before making a decision. A motion to purchase a backhoe for 135 thousand dollars was withdrawn to allow Charles McDonald a chance to look the tenders over and pick the equipment he felt best for the muncipality's needs. The delay could mean an additional 3000 dollars for the purchase, however Mayor Robert Kingsbury felt it was worth the money to make sure they were making the best investment possible for the township. Four tenders were received and the three lowest backhoes were apples for apples in comparision according to Councillor Dave Bennett. The fourth, and most expensive, was a higher class and more rugged. The motion is expected to return to council at a later date.
