The Pulaski County Recycling Center Transfer Station is in need of some repairs, according to Director Ed Clark. He told the commissioners last night that a piece of equipment has a leaking cylinder that must be fixed, but he said it isn’t an emergency and he will soon approach the council for a transfer approval.
Clark said only three companies that he knows of in Indiana are able to perform the repairs and he received two quotes from the work. The quotes came in close, Clark explained, but they call for a two- to three-day downtime to allow for the repairs. He said he would like to have them start the work on a Saturday to minimize any loss of revenue.
The quotes for the cylinder repair came in at $2749 and $2914. The lower bid, from Winamac-based Link Environmental Equipment, was approved by the commissioners pending council approval of the transfer of funds necessary. Clark said he will speak to the council at their next meeting to see about the transfer.
If the condition of the equipment worsens, Clark said he might have to perform an emergency transfer and repair, but he said monitoring the equipment’s oil levels should allow them to limp along until it can be repaired.
