Manor Council has pledged to reserve $22,400 in its capital-expense fund next year to possibly help the Manor Volunteer Fire Department buy a new fire engine.
Firefighters are considering buying a new engine that would cost about $400,000, said Councilman Brian Woy, who also serves as a department captain.
The department and council traditionally have split the payment on trucks, he said.
Woy said he wanted to make sure the $22,400 that was budgeted for a possible truck purchase this year will be set aside in the next year’s budget instead of returned to the general fund.
