PORTAGE | The Board of Works on Friday approved paying for two new automated trash trucks, even though the city doesn't quite have the financing in place.

The two trucks are being purchased from Great Lakes Peterbilt in Portage for $425,395 and are ready to be delivered.

Mayor James Snyder said the trucks are being leased through Huntington Bank, but the lease agreement is not ready.

Clerk-Treasurer Chris Stidham said the city has sufficient funds to pay for the trucks until the lease agreement is finalized.
