New garbage trucks for Powell River
Powell River City Council has made a decision on new garbage trucks for the city.
Mayor Dave Formosa says there was a lot of discussion over what type of truck to purchase. He notes they are split-bin vehicles and have the ability to automatically pick up street bins and have them dispensed into the truck bins.
Formosa says the trucks will be paid for from the Equipment Replacement Reserve and through a short-term loan to cover the balance.
