At Monday's Pottawatomie County Board of County Commissioners meeting, the board approved District 3 to purchase two new Ford pickup trucks.

Each truck will cost roughly $28,000 and will be purchased off state contract SW035 and from Hudiburg Ford in Oklahoma City.

The commissioners approved Shawnee Public Schools to go out on bid for various projects including a vestibule project at Will Rogers Elementary, a safe room edition at Jefferson Elementary and paving projects at both schools.
