Officials in Carey are looking at ways to pay for a new fire truck. The Courier reports the village is looking to buy a new ladder truck. Fire Chief Chad Snyder told village council the current truck does not extend high enough to handle firefighting above buildings. It also only has a two-person cab.
A new truck is estimated to cost $945,000. It won’t be ready for 14 months, so council will likely set aside money to buy the vehicle over the next several months. In the meantime, they’ll look funding opportunities to cover 50 percent of the new fire truck.
