SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The city of Sheboygan will be spending about a million dollars to replace its fleet of aging garbage trucks. The City Council Monday night approved the contract to purchase the four new trucks. Alderman Jim Bohren said he would have liked to have seen the city lease the trucks rather than deplete its motor vehicle fund. Chief Administrative Officer Jim Amodeo said they looked at leasing but rejected that option because over a five year period it would cost the city an additional $100,000. Public Works Director Dave Biebel said the new trucks should have a life span of about 8 years. He said maintenance on some of the city’s current trucks is running about 10 to 12-thousand dollars per year.
