The Board of Public Works and Safety met for a meeting Wednesday morning and OK'd the purchase of a truck for the street department, ordered tall grass violations and affirmed unsafe building orders.
According to Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham, the current street department truck is in very bad shape, and is getting dangerous to use.
Wyndham said a truck was found at an auction for $29,000, which had 11,000 miles on it. He said Riddell National Bank had the lowest interest rate at 2.5 percent for 60 months and the motion was made to approve the purchase, which passed unanimously.
