The Healdsburg City Council adopted a resolution approving the purchase of an aerial ladder truck, reports The Healdsburg Tribune.
The new addition is a Pierce Aerial Ladder Truck that has an 107-foot ladder and a 500-gallon water tank. The truck was chosen for its large ladder and water tank, rear-steering capabilities, updated tech, wide turning radius and narrow profile. The truck will be a good alternative to the current ladder truck, which is at the end of its useful life.
The truck will cost $1,403,669 and will be paid for through a three-year lease financing option and a payment contribution from Replay Healdsburg LLC.
The truck will be made available if the need arises.
