Owen Sound is purchasing a new sewer and catch-basin cleaning vehicle.
Council approved awarding a $643,979 tender to Joe Johnson Equipment for the machine at its meeting June 10.
It was the lowest compliant bid the city received.
According to a city staff report, the budgeted amount for the purchase was $405,000.
The sale of the old vehicle being taken out of service is expected to mitigate the overage. The staff report explains if an additional shortfall still exists, it will be funded through the city's equipment reserve.
