District 4 lends hand to ITD neighbor in Sugar City
From the District 4 newsletter Interchange
Experience goes a long way, they say. For Tony Rigby and Jerry Bankhead, experience led them to District 6 to help mill a section of Idaho 33.
As part of a cooperative agreement between the districts, D-4 sent the Zipper mill and two employees to help cure a drainage problem in Sugar City. Since District 1 is the only other district in the state to own such equipment, D-4 accepted the duty of trading services.
“It’s an easy cooperative between the districts to share equipment,” D-4 Maintenance Engineer
Scot Stacey said. “They needed a mill and we helped provide it. They have equipment that we can use as well.”
D-4 also provided assistance to District 5 in the past, but “we have a lot of work for it (the mill) in D-4, so we don’t run over to help out real fast sometimes,” Stacey said.
