At a special called meeting on Friday, Dec. 2, the Madison County Board of County Commissioners voted to lease a new grapple truck for the Madison County Solid Waste. The new truck will be leased for three years with semi-annual payments of $11,635.36 to RDK Truck Sales. The commissioners had received bids earlier this year and the RDK bid was the lowest bid.
This new truck replaces an old grapple truck that was sold to RDK Truck Sales for $15,000. The old grapple truck was inoperable with a broken frame.
The next scheduled meeting of the Madison County Board of County Commissioners is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 9 a.m. in the commission meeting room in the Courthouse Annex, located at 229 SW Pinckney St., in Madison.
