In a noontime meeting on Nov. 29, Thayer aldermen approved buying two stainless steel spreaders from Bus Andrews in Springfield for $8,950, including shipping costs.
The city street department currently has one spreader, which is in poor condition.
"Purchasing two spreaders will help the department be more efficient and get the streets covered sooner," according to the minutes.
All aldermen were present for the 22-minute meeting.
Thayer Board of Aldermen will meet again at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13, at City Hall.
