The Town of Winamac has approved the purchase of a new lawnmower.
They plan to buy a new John Deere Z970R and keep the other one they bought a few years ago. Town officials say that will increase flexibility for the various departments that use it. Most importantly, it will allow the town to cut the grass along the Winamac Parkway without interfering with lawn mowing in other areas.
The Winamac Town Council unanimously approved the purchase for a cost of $12,000. That money will come out of the 2016 budget.
