State funds will allow county to buy new excavator

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 5 February 2018 at 12:41 pm

ALBION – Orleans County is using state funds from two pots of money to pay for a new $174,289 excavator for the highway department.

The county will use a $100,000 grant through the State and Municipal Facilities Capital Funding Program or SAM. State Sen. Rob Ortt has helped several local municipalities secure SAM grants for highway equipment, including $200,000 for Murray for a new dump truck, $100,00 for Carlton for a new plow truck, $154,000 for Barre for a plow truck, and $50,000 for the Town of Albion towards a plow truck.

The county will pay for the remainder of the $174,289 excavator by using $74,289 in CHIPS funds from the state through the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program.
