Ward County to repurpose surplus trucks for snow removal

MINOT, N.D.- Ward County is looking to improve its snow removal fleet after county commissioners passed a motion Tuesday to purchase four surplus trucks at $6,000 each.

These trucks would not go to work right away, but will be used to replace older snow plows.

For now, the surplus trucks will be parked until there is an open spot on the fleet.

By purchasing used trucks, the county can purchase four vehicles for less than 10 percent of the cost of a new one.
