The Appling County Commissioner met for a regular monthly meeting on Nov. 5 and made some major purchases with regard to county equipment. Commissioner Sarah Boatright made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Charlie Leggett, to trade in an existing backhoe and frontend loader and to purchase a backhoe from Yancey Brothers. This motion also included trading in the District I motor grader and the purchase of two new motor graders and a ditching arm (to put on current District II motor grader) from Yancey Brothers with funds for the purchase coming out of SPLOST. The motion carried unanimously.
