Street sweeper purchase OK’d
Lansing city streets will soon start looking a little cleaner now that the city has approved the lease purchase of a new Crosswinds J Regenerative Street Sweeper.
The new street sweeper will cost $164,990 and will be paid for over the next five years. Council has already allocated $37,558 from the Special Highway Fund Acquisition Account for the 2007 budget to make the first year's payment.
The new sweeper will replace the FMC 3,000 street sweeper the city purchased in 1997.
John Young, Lansing director of public works, expect this new sweeper to last at least 15 years.
