JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council unanimously approved on Monday, Aug. 1, a request from the city of Valley City to purchase three of Jamestown's solid waste vehicles.

Valley City will purchase three trucks for $30,000.

Shawn O’Neill, sanitation foreman, previously said the three trucks haven’t been used by Jamestown employees for about five years.

The city of Valley City currently uses the trucks for emergency situations.

The City Council also unanimously approved awarding a bid for one tractor to Central Sales in the amount of $162,000 that will be used by the city’s wastewater department.


The planned delivery date for the tractor is May or June 2023, said Tyler Michel, engineering technician.

In other business, the City Council unanimously approved:

  • a beer, wine and sparkling wine license for Pit Stop Sports at 117 4th St. NW for the period ending Dec. 31. Pit Stop Sports will have golf simulators and ax-throwing stations and will serve food and beverages. 
  • the appointment of Christian Cairy to serve as a member of the Jamestown Planning Commission for a five-year term that expires August 2027.
