The Butler Transit Authority will purchase a new riding lawn mower.
The authority decided the current tractor (a 2011 Cub Cadet) has too many problems to keep spending money to repair.
The board approved the purchase of a Ferris IS 600 48 inch cut zero turn mower from M and R Equipment for $5,500.
The authority expects get the mower sometime in the next couple of weeks, at which time they will likely try to sell their old mower.
The authority owns one riding mower and one push mower to maintain their property on Hollywood Drive as well as the 528 Park and Ride facility.
