As a part of the FY2016 Budget, Equipment Services received approval to purchase several replacement vehicles and pieces of equipment, a few of which have already been received. The equipment received is one Toro Sand Pro bunker rake, to be used by the Parks Department, as well as two V-box sand spreaders and a concrete saw for the use of the Streets Department. Vehicles received include three F-150 pickup trucks for the Equipment Services, Streets and Water Departments. One F-450 cab/chassis with a service body was also received for the Wastewater Department and one F-350 cab/chassis with a service body for the Water Department. In addition, there are six new Patrol SUV Police Interceptors currently in the process of having police equipment installed.
These units are a vital part of the City’s operation and are essential in the day-to-day activities of the City. The vehicles and equipment are used in maintaining integrity of City streets, the quality of water, the flow of wastewater, and the protection of the citizens. The bunker rake is used in maintaining the ball fields used by citizens and athletic associations.
There are a total of twenty-one vehicles and pieces of equipment being purchased this year. More deliveries are expected in the near future for the rest of the vehicles and equipment ordered. If you have any questions regarding Equipment Services, please call Asa Low at 972-780-5062.
