City of Kennewick to Buy Sunnyside’s Street Sweeper

A $200,000 mistake was knocked down to a loss of $25,000; KIMA learned Kennewick agreed to take Sunnyside’s street sweeper for $175,000.

Earlier this year, Sunnyside bought a street sweeper that didn’t work on the city’s roads.

It turns out this isn’t the kind of thing you can just return. The city never tested the machine before buying it.

It’s a net loss of about $25,000 for Sunnyside taxpayers.

“It wasn’t about who made the mistake. It was more about identifying there was a mistake made. And moving forward for the best solution for everybody and I think we pulled that off,” said Sunnyside Public Works Superintendent Shane Fisher.

Kennewick should get the sweeper in the next few weeks
