After weeks of waiting, a brand new, smaller, and more efficient fire truck got finishing touches of equipment added recently. Fire Chief Mike Roberts says the new “317” truck has all of the same rescue and extrication equipment as the previous, larger unit – which the department sold for $165,000. Roberts says the city pad $160,000 for the new truck, which will be able to turn corners, move into fields, and have less of a chance to get stuck in the mud than before.
