October 4, 2012

BOUNTIFUL — The city council recently approved the purchase of a digger derrick line truck for the city’s utility company for $178,588.

The truck is for use by the Bountiful City Light & Power Company.

Allen Johnson, director of BCL&P, described the truck as a mini crane and said officials were fortunate to find a demo to replace an existing truck, which is a 1988 model.

Any purchase for a utility more than $10,000 requires council approval.
