City working to replace snow plow as snow moves in

Quincy crews are continuing to work to replace the snow plow that recently caught fire.

The snow plow went up in flames in November of 2018 due to mechanical issues.

City crews say they’ll receive $35,000 from insurance for the damaged truck and will be able to salvage the bed and salt spreader to use for back up on other vehicles.

“We’ve got the insurance money now so we can either use the existing bed on that truck on a new chassis or we can just buy a whole new truck and be able to sell the bed and salvage that,” said Assistant Director of Quincy Central Services John Schafer.

Even though truck 20 was damaged in the fire, Schafer says the city is not down a snow plow.

They had an extra truck and will still have 12 trucks running over the weekend as snow is predicted to move in the area.
