CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - Charlottetown’s public works department has purchased seven new sidewalk machines to carry out all sidewalk snow removal activities.
However, there was insufficient space to store these new machines at the public works garage on MacAleer Drive.
So, council has agreed to store them at old Livingston’s Welding building on Kensington Road at a cost of $34,500 per year. The lease works out to about $2,800 a month, less than the $4,300 a month the city had to pay last year to store them on Longworth Avenue. They had to be moved as the Longworth site developed mold and other building maintenance issues.
In regard to the price, Coun. Terry Bernard, former chairman of the public works committee, said the Livingstone’s site stores a number of varieties of city equipment and supplies.
He added that the machines need to be stored indoors during the winter months as hydraulic fluid needs to stay warm for the machine to be kept in good working condition.
