CENTRAL FALLS â€” The Department of Public Works is offering up a bucketful of thanks to some friendly folks at the AT&T Corporation who gave the cash-strapped city a used bucket truck free of charge.
Joseph Nield, Central Falls Director of Public Works, said that about six months ago, it was discovered that the city's lone bucket truck, a 1989 model, was going to need about $15,000 in repair work to its extension boom to pass the annual safety inspection. Given that the truck is 18 years-old, Nield said it didn't seem worth fixing even if the city did have the available funds.
