By Jennifer McIntosh, Ottawa Community News, October 6, 2017

This year, the city has acquired 11 new hybrid vehicles, the transportation committee heard on Oct. 4.

Of the 11 new vehicles, eight of them were for bylaw services.

For 2018, the city plans to spend $25.7 million to replace 97 vehicles and pieces of equipment for greener alternatives.

There are also plans to buy 16 new vehicles in the coming year. Funding for the extra 16 will be sought during the upcoming budget process.
