Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Many of you know that our parish needs to buy a tractor.
We need it:
• For mowing grass (currently, it costs the parish $640, and it needs to be mowed at least every 2-3 weeks);
• For land works related to further parish projects such as cultivating land for sowing fruits and vegetables, planting trees, laying walking forest paths, installing a bee apiary, and multiple works related to wood.
The tractor dealership in Chesapeake has a Kubota tractor with a capacity of 24 hp. The kit includes a front bucket and a mower with a diameter of 5 feet. The price is $ 19,500. This tractor is capable of cutting 5 acres in about 2 hours.
The Parish Council decided it makes sense to invest in this purchase as it would save us much money over the years.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Thank you for supporting us!
