DANVILLE — The Danville Village Council members decided it wasn’t time to sell the old Ford truck.
The village had requested sealed bids for the old dump truck, but with only two low bids to choose from, the council members decided to wait until later to sell the truck.
While admitting the truck needs some work, council members felt it was worth more than the high bid of $1,075. With a new transmission and nice snow plow, village administrator Robert Shipley felt it was worth nearly three times that amount.
After refusing both bids, council will look to village solicitor Noel Alden to find out what other options they have in attempting to sell the 1993 truck. They recently purchased a newer truck to be used for village projects and plowing of snow, making the old truck unnecessary.
