NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- If a limb should fall, the last place you want it to land is on your roof, right?
That's the main reason the city of New Albany is taking steps toward the purchase of two new boom bucket trucks to make sure preventative maintenance continues full force.
Light, Gas and Water General Manager says the city is going to replace two of his six bucket trucks.
The $215,000 truck will have a 60 foot boom.
The $106,000 vehicle will have a 40 foot boom.
"When they get to that age-that point in their life, they're just not very dependable. It's really gonna upgrade our fleet," said New Albany Light, Gas and Water General Manager Bill Mattox.
Mattox says only three of their bucket boom trucks are considered dependable.
