Binghamton Buys Street Sweepers With FEMA Funds

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The city of Binghamton has purchased a pair of street sweepers to replace older units that sustained heavy wear and tear as the result of cleanup work after the 2011 flood.

The equipment cost nearly $389,000. Money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency was used to acquire the sweepers.

Mayor Richard David says the street sweepers will be used regularly downtown and through city neighborhoods.

The new sweepers force air into street cracks and crevices to remove dust particles, along with trash, leaves and dirt.

City officials say the high-efficiency design of the units means they should use less water than older equipment.
