Carey village council is looking for more funding sources to buy a new fire truck. The Courier reports the village will apply for an Assistance for Firefighters grant. The grant can provide between $100,000 and $500,000 for fire departments.
Carey has already received a grant for more than $104,000 to buy an aerial pumper truck. The village plans to borrow around $858,000 to pay for the truck, which council ordered in August. Officials expect to get the truck in around 14 months.
JustWrite Solutions will help the village apply for the grant. Council approved a $3,500 contract with the company during their Monday meeting.
