Council Buys Sat-Navs - For Lawnmowers!

 

Updated : Mar 12, 2009

A council has been slammed for spending £6,000 on sat navs for lawnmowers.

The route-finding devices have been fitted to Leicestershire County Council's fleet of 14 ride-on machines. Officials claim the purchase will help mowers combat an "unprecedented amount of growth" on verges and playing fields.

The sat navs will be used by contractors to locate the next patch of unmown grass. Launching the system, county council leader David Parsons said: "I'm pleased we are embracing innovative technology. Following last year's unprecedented amount of growth, we have also increased the number of cuts and staff."

Mr Brain Rayner, of the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners, who also lives in Leicestershire, said: "If you leave a lawn or a playing field for weeks without cutting it then it's going to get out of hand. You don't need a satellite to tell you that."

VeryHappyPig says surely they could have spent the money on something worthwhile!
