Ponoka County council denied a buyer’s offer to purchase a D7 Cat and scraper.

The buyer offered $250,000 and a financial arrangement. The buyer would put $30,000 down and pay the rest in $10,000 deposits each month.

“My initial reaction was we are not in the finance business, nor have we ever been,” said Cutforth.

Cutforth brought the offer to the council, which decided the offer and financial arrangement weren’t in the county’s best interest.

Grader orders placed

Council has decided to order three graders for next year.

Cutforth says the orders were placed Sept. 10 but the grader orders themselves will take six months.

The order will cost approximately $1.2 million but can be cancelled at any time said Cutforth.

According to Cutforth the cost of a grader is $300 less than last year.
