Manila Council passes resolution to lease/purchase truck

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

A special called meeting of the Manila City Council was held on Thursday for the purpose of finalizing the lease/purchase of a loader truck.

A quorum was present with Larry "Whiz" Davis, Linda Donovan, Donnie Wagner and Tony Hawkins, present. Council members unanimously voted to pass the resolution for the lease/purchase.

Mayor Wayne Wagner said the city is purchasing the service contract along with the truck which comes with a two year warranty. He went on to explain the truck will be completed serviced at the 23 month mark and the city will make a decision on the 25th month if they want to keep the truck, walk away or lease/purchase a new one.

Superintendent Henry Ford said the truck is scheduled to be delivered on Monday.

Mayor Wagner wished everyone a good Fourth of July holiday and complimented Henry and his crew for doing a good job getting the park ready for the holiday and a weekend tournament.

The next regular city council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, July 21, at the meeting room of the new terminal building at the airport.
