The Methuen Department of Public Works will have several new vehicles on the road in the new year, now that city councilors have approved almost $470,000 to replace trucks whose upkeep was getting costly. Methuen DPW director Raymond DiFiore, will be able to purchase six pickup trucks, two plow rigs, a 10-wheeler, three dump-truck bodies, and three rider lawn mowers. The new vehicles are expected to last up to eight years, and will be paid for through a five-year financing plan. Once the new equipment arrives, DiFiore said, he will auction off or limit the use of about 10 of his oldest vehicles.
