The Eastern Pulaski School Board Monday night opted to spend a little bit more money in order to buy from a local vendor.
They got quotes from GreenMark Equipment in Winamac and Tri Green Tractor in Logansport for a 72 inch deck diesel John Deere to replace the front mount they use for mowing.
GreenMark’s price was $500 more to cover the cost of freight. The board opted to spend the extra money and buy from the local dealer. Members noted they provide Gators each year for the athletic department to use during the fall and spring sports seasons. Money for the purchase is available in the corporation’s capital projects fund.
