report on capital equipment
snowblower going down at a school is critical need (unlike a lawnmower, which can wait a day and be borrowed from another school)
replace six snowblowers a year (for 44 schools and 50 buildings and 394 acres)
parking lots plowed with pickups
"needed to ensure safety"
Novick: what would a reasonable budget look like?
if our snowblowers go down, we can't open the school
work with city, DPW, others on clearing?
