The Washington County Secondary Roads Department is purchasing a new motor grader. Washington County Engineer David Patterson says the new Caterpillar Motor Grader which costs $227,685 will replace one purchased in 1996 for $152,000. The county will receive a $68,000 trade-in value for the 1996 grader making the final purchase price of a little over $159,000. Patterson says the Secondary Roads Department replaces one piece of equipment each year. He says this new grader will have a joystick control and will arrive in the fall. Patterson says the operator of the grader is hoping to be accustomed to the new equipment prior to the first snowstorm.
