Haliburton County will be getting two tandem axle trucks instead of one.
The county’s Roads Committee learned this week that one of the trucks became unusable thanks to an oil leak.
That’s according to Director of Public Works Craig Douglas.
C.A.O. Mike Rutter says the broken down truck will be traded in since it was recently purchased.
Rutter did not say if there was a cost associated with the trade in.
Douglas also says a new truck that is coming in February was already in the 2018 draft budget.
The truck arriving next month means the public works department will be down a vehicle until early February.
The new truck will cost $243,175, which is approximately $13,000 under budget.
The replacement is expected to arrive later this year.
