City To Buy Asphalt Roller
Friday May 30, 2014 1:50pm
Sturgis, MI

By: Mike Stiles

(STURGIS) – The City of Sturgis will be purchasing another piece of equipment to help them with their road repairs.

Director of Public Services Rick Miller shared with the Commission that over the last few years, the City has been able to use an asphalt roller from Morris Excavating for the repair of utility cuts and potholes. The cost to use that machine has been extremely low.

However, Miller says since the City purchased an asphalt planer, there has been an increase in the use of that roller to the point that scheduling between the City and Morris Excavating has become a problem.

Miller says his department has been able to budget funds in the current fiscal year to purchase a roller but there has been some concern over costs and fees that could be associated with the purchase. ...... {LISTEN}.

Miller asked permission to be able to bid up to $16,000 on a roller. Any buyer's fees would be in addition to this bid amount.

The Commission approved the recommendation.
