              Patrol truck- Chair Fahey noted the possible need to replace the patrol truck.  The box has started to rust out.  A new truck would potentially be fitted with a snowplow blade and salt/sander to help with intersection clean up and small snow/ice events versus running a big truck around.  Discussion followed as to whether to continue with the current truck or replace it. Ted thought the truck would be worth $12,000-$15,000.  A recent bid of a Dodge truck was $43,000 (government purchase).  A blade is $6,000, dump box is $12,000, and sander is $4,000.   Ted noted he would have Patrolman Abey continue to get bids and it will be discussed at the April board meeting.
