The Washington County Commissioners gave Sheriff Otto Hanak the authority to buy a used pickup truck, so they can transport trustees at the county jail for work projects.
The truck has 110,000 miles on it, and needs only minor repairs. Precinct three County Commissioner Luther Hueske says the $10,500 price tag is a good deal for such a truck.
The pickup truck will be used to transport the trustees to worksites and to carry the necessary equipment. The previous truck blew its engine recently and needed to be replaced.
Commissioner Hueske says this truck should last a while and was a better deal than getting a new truck.
