Sunrise Beach Gets New Public Works Truck

Local News Friday, July 31st, 2020

A state program through the Department of Natural Resources is giving Sunrise Beach around $18- thousand  dollars for the new truck that’ll replace the city’s old 2004 Ford F-150.

City planner Roger Corbin says the old truck has been used to spread salt in the winter, so it’s very rusted and it has been in repair for motor troubles numerous times over the past few years.

Corbin tells KY 3 TV the money comes through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources from Volkswagon’s emissions cheating scandal, which aims to help get higher emission cars and trucks off the street.

He says the city will still be on the hook for about $27-thousand dollars out of the budget.
