City to get new trucks, equipment


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.
