West Unity Vil­lage Coun­cil voted unan­i­mously Thurs­day night to move for­ward towards the pur­chase of a used vac­tor truck.

The 1994 truck will cost the vil­lage $105,000, and will be used for sewer clean­ing and leaf pickup. It replaces a 1980

model that has been in use for around 16 years and has no trade-in value.

Accord­ing to the Bryan Times, a sim­i­lar new unit would cost more than $450,000 and lease for $8,500 monthly.

To buy the truck, $15,000 will be taken from each of five funds to pro­vide $75,000. The remain­ing $30,000 comes from a debt ser­vice fund on a one-month loan. The ordi­nance to sup­port the fund­ing will be voted on at the Aug. 8 coun­cil meeting.
