The heat is on at the Town of Andes Board with budget time quickly approaching. Deputy Supervisor Bud Gladstone opened the September 9 regular meeting and the council listened as Highway Superintendent Mike McAdams urgently requested a new, or newer, plow truck. “We have seven operators and seven trucks,” said McAdams. “If one of those trucks goes out of commission, we get behind on the plowing.
McAdams continued, “The shop also really needs a mechanic. I’ve been working too many weekends this summer and can’t keep it up.”
