North Providence is ready for winter with a new fleet of used snow plows. Mayor Charles Lombardi says the city paid 23-thousand-dollars for two dozen pieces of heavy equipment at a state DOT auction. Nineteen of the vehicles are old dump trucks fitted with snow plows, and another is a street sweeper. Lombardi refers to himself as a motorhead, and says he plans to use some of the plows for parts. He says at least eight of the plows will be put into immediate use this winter.
