Russell (KS) City Council Approves Lease-Purchase for Fire Apparatus

The Russell City Council approved a lease-purchase agreement to acquire a new rescue pumper fire truck, reports KRSL Russell Radio.

The new truck will replace the 1980 Doran Dole Engine 1 truck, return the fleet to five fire trucks and add life to the current Rescue 1 truck, as the new truck will take over response to the majority of crash calls.

The lease-purchase agreement was approved with an annual payment not to exceed $40,000 for a period of 12 years with Community Leasing Partners of Manhattan.
