The city is set to buy the Vactor Combination Sewer Cleaner, after the existing machine got “worn out.”
Brecksville City Council unanimously approved the $346,000 purchase of new equipment that cleans the city’s sewer system. Officials said the one the city currently uses has just gotten “worn out.” “What we’ve got now is a 1999,” said Ron Weidig, the city’s service director. “It really takes abuse. If you can imagine sucking all this debris out of the ground at a high rate of speed and blowing it into the back — it’s getting worn out.” The city will buy the Vactor PLUS Combination Sewer Cleaner from Jack Doheny Companies, through the state’s administrative services purchasing program, for $346,181. The news that the city needed a new one didn’t come as a surprise. The purchase had already been included in the 2013 budget, city officials …

After about two and a half months of repairs, the cupola has been restored and placed on the top of City Hall just in time for Home Days.
This morning’s rain didn’t keep the employees from Campbellsville Industries and Atlas Crane and Rigging Inc. from putting the cupola back on City Hall. Campbellsville Industries in Kentucky, the company that originally made the cupola, took it off in early April for repairs. Earlier today, employees from the company and Atlas Crane placed it back on the top of City Hall. The weather—and some unforeseen adjustments that needed to be made once the cupola was set on the roof—had caused some slight delays. As of 11 a.m., employees were just waiting to put on the finishing touches, like the weathervane.
