Granby wants to destroy the bulldozer

ALLEN BESTspecial to the daily

GRANBY – It’s now two to one. Joining Grand County officials, the Granby Town Board wants to destroy the bulldozer used in the rampage that gutted or damaged 13 buildings last June. The only dissenting voice is the local historical association, which urges a longer view.”I think it should be destroyed,” one trustee said at a recent meeting. “I think it should be destroyed,” another said. “Get rid of it, destroy it,” another said as the Granby town trustees worked their way toward a unanimous vote.Marvin Heemeyer had encased the seating area of the 70-ton bulldozer with plate steel and concrete, then outfitted himself with three guns, video cameras, firing ports, and a ventilator. In all, it took him seven months to build. He culminated his rampage against his supposed enemies by committing suicide.
