LMG Snowblower

New Snowblower

Capital Works has purchased a new snowblower that will make cleaning the streets faster, and cheaper.

Two winters ago, there was a record snowfall in the area. Municipal budgets all around the area were strained by the added burden. This was part of the reason the funds to purchase a new snowblower were approved.

Listuguj had to outsource snow-blowing to a contract in previous years. It would cost  approximately $3,000 each time.

The contractor was need 7 to 10 times last year, said Jody Mitchell, the Director of Capital and Infrastructure.

The snowblower has already been used twice this year, during this relatively mild winter.
