Dieterle presented two bids for a new street sweeper. The current city machine is outdated and needs to be replaced, Dieterle explained.

“I do remember during clean up after the parade, it had to go up and down Main Street several times, and still didn’t really seem to actually pick the stuff up,” noted Mayor Bill Curtis.
