BOC approves sale of surplus equipment


The Newton County Board of Commissioners (BOC) voted to approve the sale of surplus county-owned equipment on at its April 4 meeting.

According to the request to sell the items, they are no longer serviceable due to a lack of available parts, or the repair costs exceed the value of the piece of equipment. Among the items to be sold are an inoperable copier, a generator on a two-wheel trailer, a bush hog and several motor vehicles.

The BOC also authorized coyote trapping on certain county-owned property located on Lower River Road and authorized the purchase of equipment for the Public Works Department.

Among the equipment to be purchased is a pothole patching truck which, according to County Manager Lloyd Kerr, will speed up the process of patching potholes and allows for a more efficient and more durable patch.
