Amherst (VA) Fire Department Purchases Fire Apparatus

An agreement between the Amherst County Board of Supervisors, the county’s economic development authority and the Amherst Fire Department in buying a new fire truck is set to yield about $34,000 in savings, reports Amherst New Era-Progress.

The county has allocated $620,000 in its current fiscal year budget to finance the majority of the cost of the new engine while the Amherst department is picking up the difference of $47,378, according to the agreement.

The nearly $34,000 discount is equivalent to the better part of an employee’s annual salary
