The Highway Division rolled out the newest addition to the Town fleet - Truck 11 Catch Basin Cleaner. This piece of equipment is used to clean catch basins in Town, both removal of the grate and materials that collect in the catch basins themselves.
The last piece of equipment the Town had that could perform these functions was from 1995 and was taken out of service in the Fall of 2022 due to a rotted frame, which could not pass inspection.
The Town was able to purchase this vehicle through the Stormwater Enterprise Fund and with the help of this vehicle the Town will be able to continue to preserve and maintain our stormwater infrastructure and system.
