The Village of Exeter recently purchased a new loader. The subject of a new loader was broached this spring after the bad weather the area experienced this last winter. The Village had a loaner loader over the winter because of a manufacturing issue to replace a broken window in their current loader. The loader is a Caterpillar 924H. The total for the loader came to $116,150 and the village used the $21, 751 from the sale of the old loader and $15,000 from sales tax funds to help pay for the purchase. The village borrowed the $79,000 to make up the total cost of the loader.
