Old South Whidbey Parks tractor traded for brush attachment

South Whidbey Parks leaders were seeing green after a proposed trade was essentially a $3,000 bonus for the district.

The South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District plans to buy a new mower next year and wanted to trade in its old mower. Parks Director Doug Coutts said the old mower was valued at $5,000 for trade credit. Instead of credit, the old mower will be traded straight-up for an $8,000 brush attachment which can be used on the district’s tractor to clear debris.
