The Kalona City council has OK’d the purchase of a new truck. The 2013 1 Ton Silverado pickup truck will be used by the Public Works Department for street work. According to City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh the price of $12,146 for the truck will be paid for with local option sales tax dollars. He adds that includes equipping the truck with a box, discount from the dealer and the trade in of another truck. The purchase was approved at last week’s meeting.
