County Highway Department Supervisor Russell Klegstad asked the county board for approval to purchase a 2015 GMC Sierra 4WD crew cab truck for $36,476.81 to replace one that was totaled in a rollover accident last summer. The county received $16,313.75 from insurance for the totaled truck that will be used toward the purchase. The truck would be purchased from Nelson Auto Center in Fergus Falls, MN, which is the dealer for state bids. Commissioners approved the purchase unanimously at the March 25 board meeting.
