City Maintenance and Construction Needs Big Equipment Replacements

Posted By News On @ 6:24 am In Today's Local News | Comments Disabled

As the Washington City Council puts together the budget for next year, they may take on two big equipment needs. The city’s leaf-vac and the street sweeper are targeted for replacement.  On Wednesday, the Washington City Council discussed the machine the city uses to collect leaves, which is basically a huge vacuum and shredder.  The leaf-vac was out of commission for weeks last fall.  City Administrator Brent Hinson says the expected replacement cost is around 35-thousand dollars.  He says that one of the problems is that when the current machine has problems, the city cannot find support.

The draft budget also has 125-thousand dollars for replacing the city street sweeper.
