The city spent over $110,000 to fix a grader that passed during the previous council meeting.
Only one question was asked at the meeting by councillor Bruni.
He inquired if all future equipment will have the new piece attached so this doesn’t happen again.
As the report states this is the recommendation from staff and Bruni was told that in council.
That was the only question.
So what happened?
Graders are used in winter to scrape the hard pack from the road that is left behind by the plow shoes.
Did the grader hit a bad patch?
Has it happened before?
Follow up with city staff took several days and did not provide the taxpayers with much information.
According to Tessa Vecchio, the city’s corporate communications officer, the repairs are almost complete.
“The damage was done from scraping ice off roadways. Repairs are underway and almost complete,” said Vecchio. “There are 8 graders in the fleet, 5 owned, 3 leased.”
So this is the extent of answers we are able to get to an over $110,000 spend by the city.
