The Brook-Iroquois Township Fire Department was the lone bidder of Rensselaer’s aerial truck and their bid of $175,000 was approved by the Rensselaer City Council, reports Newton County Enterprise.
The fire department is hoping to take delivery of the fire truck around the end of May.
The 2003 aerial fire truck appraises at $230,000. The fire department got a verbal commitment from the Newton County Council for a $200,000 grant and a $75,000 loan.
The truck will be the county’s second aerial following Lake Township’s purchase of one late last year.
