The Demorest City Council delayed the purchase of a new fire truck with no planned date to revisit the purchase, reports nowhabersham.com.
The delay will last at least six months. Public safety funding had previously been approved for $580,000 for a fire truck. But the truck that the city needs will cost $650,000. Unfortunately, the price of the truck is set to go up over the course of those six months.
The fire department currently uses a 25-year-old fire engine has been out of service for two weeks.
