Mayes County Commissioners approved the expenditure of $58,500 by Disney Fire Department. The department is seeking to replace a 1980s model 500-gallon truck, which will be surplussed upon replacement.
Three bids were received, one from Claremore and two from out of state.
The Claremore bid was the only truck currently available, according to Larry Sanders of Disney Fire Department. The other two will not be ready until December, which means a delivery date of March or April.
Though not the lowest bid, the 1,000-gallon 1993 freight-liner in Claremore was approved.
