In January, the Public Works Department took delivery of a new 2017 Western Start 5-ton dump truck complete with plow and salt spreader.
The new truck replaces a 1991 5-ton dump truck that has been in service for 26 years and the new truck cost $143,971.00. Based on the 26-year life span of the truck it replaced, the cost breaks down to $5,537 per year. The old truck, which has little trade in value, will be kept by the Public Works Department for hauling of materials until such time as it gives up in order to save wear and tear on the newer vehicles.
