A top San Miguel County official says he understands why some people are wondering about the county’s new semi-truck, which has an extended sleeper cab.
After all, trucks with such cabs are usually much more expensive.
But in this case, County Manager Les Montoya said, the county went out to bid for a used truck and went with the lowest bidder, who just so happened to be selling a truck with a sleeper.
The price tag was $49,846.
“We don’t need a sleeper, but it was on the truck,” Montoya said.
