    "either bringing in a machine ourselves or engaging a contractor to bring in a machine from the mainland" why use a contractor? Now our taxes will pay for his profit. I think they should use local machines and for anything too big, leave it for firewood for residents. How much does a machine cost??

    You mean St. John's doesn't have the equipment, time to get rid of either enough street sweepers or sidewalk plows and get a mulcher................and before the sidewalk crowd gets up in arms, all the sidewalk plows do is make a 3 foot wide skating rink

    BUY A MACHINE! WHY WASN'T THIS EVEN AN OPTION? IF WE DON'T HAVE ONE IN ST. JOHN'S THEN BUY ONE. THIS WASN'T THE FIRST TIME WE NEEDED ONE AND I'M SURE THIS WILL NOT BE THE LAST. $127,000.00 YOUR KIDDING RIGHT. BUY A CHIPPER FOR ST. JOHN'S, IT WILL PAY FOR ITSELF!!!!!

      For the love of god, what in the hell is the council doing ??? Buy a new machine. I'm sure $127,000 would be a nice downpayment. A city our size should have one that can address our needs. There'll be plenty of occasions to use it with climate change and more storms and of course, Christmas trees !! Smarten up council. Were sure you're getting lots of new tax revenue with all the new houses and buildings going up in the city.
