Evanston aldermen Monday will be asked to approve spending $143,425.50 to purchase a new Zamboni ice resurfacer for the Robert Crown Center, to replace a machine that's now 15 years old.
In a memo to aldermen, Assistant City Manager Erika Storlie says the old Olympia Millenium ice resurfacer was purchased for $68,000 and has had 7,848 service hours and has undergone nearly $84,000 worth of in-house and vendor repairs.
The old vehicle runs on propane. The new one is battery powered. The city plans to auction off the old one.
