Mayor Harold Slone advised the Council that the street sweeper was not working due to a hydraulic pump failure. He said the streets were looking really bad and asked for advice on repairing the old one or purchasing a used one.
Council member Tom Parsons agreed to talk to the city mechanics and get a solid price for the repair, then the decision could be made to either purchase used one or repair the old one.
