The Edwardsville (IL) Fire Department is seeking approval for a new $650,000 custom pumper, according to a report published by The Edwardsville Intelligencer.

The department made a pitch to the city’s public safety committee recently to purchase a Rosenbauer EXT custom pumper built on a Commander cab and chassis, the report said.

If approved, the new truck would be purchased using the Houston-Galveston Area Council program and payments would be split between the current fiscal year and next year’s fiscal year budget, according to the newspaper.

When delivered, the new pumper will replace a 2000 model year unit that is at the end of its service life, the paper reported, adding that the used apparatus still has some value that can be credited to the department.
