The Mayor also took the opportunity to introduce the new street sweeper that was obtained for the island as a direct result of San Pedro’s sister relationship with Wilmington, Virginia, USA. She also announced that the Mayor of San Salvador City in El Salvador has promised the San Pedro Town Council a water tank truck that will help wet the streets. In addition, the Mayor confirmed to The San Pedro Sun that a second street sweeper should be on the island within the next two weeks and will be utilized to sweep the side walks.

My entry in the Name The Street Sweeper Contest is Crusher™.


I hope that someday we can put aside our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

Well, that was it's Wilmington name. Something apropos to the narrower-than-the-sweeper San Pedro streets might be more like it.

The brushes on those suckers are not going to be too friendly to the cobblestones! Okay for pavement.


I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

I think they are concrete pavers not cobblestones.

Most sweepers these days have stiff plastic brushes not metal like they used to.

My Sweeper looks very much like my Dishwasher and my Laundry Machine.
