The Winamac Park Department is getting an equipment upgrade. The park board Thursday approved the purchase of a new lawnmower from GreenMark Equipment for a cost of $11,230. It will replace a 2012 mower with nearly 2,000 hours, according to Park Manager Dave DeLorenzo.
Rather than trading in the old mower, board members agreed to sell it to the town’s Wastewater Department for $1,000, at the recommendation of board member and town manager Brad Zellers. It was noted that money for the new mower is included in the Park Department’s 2019 budget.
