JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council unanimously approved purchasing a new motor grader for about $349,000 from RDO Equipment Co. through the Minnesota Cooperative Purchasing Venture.

The City Council held a special meeting Monday, Sept. 26, because the motor grader needed to be purchased before Thursday, Sept. 29, or it would have cost an additional $60,000.

The city of Jamestown will receive about $178,000 when it returns a 2018 motor grader to RDO Equipment that will be used toward the purchase, said Tyler Michel, engineering technician.

The city of Jamestown will hopefully receive the motor grader sometime in 2023, according to a memo to the Public Works Committee.

The next City Council meeting is at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, at City Hall.
