Municipal officials approved the purchase of a machine to grind tree stumps for $61,601, according to public records.
Woodland Park-based Northeastern Arborist Supply will deliver the stump grinder Model SG-75. The machine will be used to grind stumps after public works worker cut down trees.
Previously, public works lacked a tree stump grinder or remover. They rented a machine to remove half-dozen tree stumps that were left behind after dead trees were cut down from the Lucas Park last year.
Municipal officials approved the contract to purchase the machine on March 23.
