Three Rivers Mayor Tom Lowry and commissioners last week agreed to two major purchases.
In advance of winter weather, the city commission approved the purchase of 5,000 pounds of road salt. The $24,000 transaction will call for 60 percent of the salt to be delivered ahead of the season and the balance will be shipped later in the winter.
Also, the commission agreed to buy a pickup truck that will be converted into a brush truck. The $24,000 Silverado from Vetter Chevrolet was conducted in tandem with the Lockport Township fire contract.
