Over the past few weeks, FLMD staff has worked very hard to develop a prioritized list of heavy equipment and vehicles that we need to replace over the next few years. It is not a secret how old our heavy equipment and vehicles are and the constant battle it has been to keep these items safe and operating for their intended purposes. So, our Masterplan looked at the existing condition of all of our heavy equipment and vehicles, prioritized them for replacement according to their operational need/condition, and then figured out how and when we could and should feasibly replace them. Our 1st priority was to replace our skid steer that we use very heavily for feeding the air curtain at the Brush and Slash Pile, and to remove snow down at the O&M complex. Through your support, the support of the Board and with the great deal SWAG Inc. offered us, we were able to replace it at the end of July 2020. At the end of the day, it is the residents that ultimately benefit from staff having dependable equipment and vehicles, and we greatly appreciate your continued support!
