The division sold 67 “worn, inefficient and under-utilized pieces of equipment” and plans to use the $578,176 in proceeds to buy seven new pieces of equipment, according to city documents.
The City Council will be asked to approve an ordinance today to pay for the equipment.
The new equipment, which includes a snowplow, a pothole patching truck and two vibratory rollers, will “enhance its work in pavement preservation/repair and winter operations,” city documents state.
According to the city:
Almost half of the division’s fleet “is beyond its suggested service life.”
The sale of the 67 older pieces of equipment “will reduce expenditures for repair and maintenance.”
