The board opened bids for a new truck for the engineer- ing department. The board ap- proved going with Olson and ]ohnson Sanitation Products, an associate of North Central In- ternational, at $193,783 with a trade-in.

Amundson said there are con- tinually more on-line applica- tions and processes with the state, with the DNR being the latest.
