Bluffton council will act on the purchase of a new fire truck and new turn out gear later this month. The vehicle under consideration would replace the 1984 Ford that is in the department.
Council heard a presentation on Sept. 15 from a village safety services meeting held earlier.
Council is considering the purchase of a 2015 Rosenbauer smart cab firefighter at a purchase price of $310,206. If purchased the vehicle will be delivered next fall.
