After two years hauling water, golf cart is retired
Mark Peterson

City workers and volunteers will no longer use a golf cart to haul water to the flowers along Main Street and Highway 30 East.
The Stewartville City Council, at its regular meeting two weeks ago, agreed to sell the golf cart on Internet auction, trade in the city's Rhino tractor and purchase a Polaris Ranger tractor from Podein's Power Equipment of Stewartville.
Mayor Jimmie-John King and councilpersons Wendy Timm, Roger Hanson and Gary Stensrud agreed to purchase the Ranger tractor. Councilperson Judy Hanson was the lone dissenter.
With the trade-in, the city will pay $5,800 for the new Ranger, a price slightly lower than the $6,000 budgeted for the purchase in the city's capital equipment plan, said Mark Stevens, public works director.
The golf cart wore out after city employees and volunteers used it to carry water to the flowers for two summers, Stevens said. The Ranger will work better for that purpose, he said.
"The two years pretty well did the golf cart in," he said.
