Norwalk city council members are taking a close look at three pieces of equipment requested by the sanitation department in the 2014 budget.
The items are a new garbage truck, front-end loader and vacuum for leaf pickup.
The garbage truck costs $200,000, while the leaf machine comes with a $40,000 price tag and the front-end loader has a cost of $110,000.
"This is not an issue of funding, but an issue of need," Councilman Bob Carleton said Wednesday, referring to the sanitation fund.
