Town Works Department Getting Generator After Ice Storm

Quispamsis council allocating some money in their budget to buy a generator for the Public Works garage, after crews worked through the ice storm without heat or lights.

Councillor Pierre Rioux says now if there's another power outage, the job can be done under better conditions. Mayor Murray Driscoll says it's important the department have back-up power.

While the storm was, literally, a dark time for the town, Driscoll says he is proud of the way the town came together. 

He says it's still too early to tell what the financial impact of the storm will be for the town.
