Newton street sweeper burns — again

May 25, 2012

For the second time in two years, Newton is without a street sweeper after fires rendered the equipment useless.

Now, city leaders are hoping to invest $40,000 into a replacement so Newton can comply with state and federal stormwater control rules until a new street sweeper can be bought in 2014.

"Our street sweeper is out of commission," said Newton City Manager Todd Clark. "Our permit for stormwater control mandates we operate a street cleaning program. At this point we are not compliant with this unfunded mandate."
