Effingham (MO) City Council Reaches Agreement on Fire Apparatus Purchase

Effingham city council agreed to the purchase of a fire engine, reports Premier Broadcasting, Inc.

Fire Chief Bob Tutko said the foreign fire agency fund will contribute toward the purchase cost. The truck will be purchased under a five-year lease-purchase plan at a cost of $97,000/year, rather than $138,000/year.

Some city officials expressed concern over the size of the fire department’s budget. While others countered the fund kicking in a share of the cost is a good move.
