The Pulaski County Council approved the purchase of a generator for the health department.

Terri Hansen had been asking for a generator for the department for several years. After working with county maintenance director Jeff Johnston, Hansen said they are ready to make the purchase.

“Jeff Johnston, I talked with him a couple of times and he said the generator that would run our office is about $2,900. I’m asking for an additional in equipment for $3,500 for the generator and for any cost for the hookup,” said Hansen.

The council approved the additional appropriation.

The council discussed purchasing a similar generator for $3,500 at the county home, but the action died for a lack of a motion.
