New Tecumseth Fire Chief Finds New Aerial

New Tecumseth Fire Chief Dan Heydon found a new aerial to replace the 24-year-old model. He found one that with the HST rebate, will cost the Town $744,868.

The selected submission is a Pierce Stock Unit 23868 which was being used as a demonstrator apparatus and can be delivered in early September. Training will take another three days before it goes into active duty.

The only issue that’s outstanding is how New Tecumseth will pay for the unit. It’s recommended the cost be covered by long term debenture which, over a 20-year period at 3.32 interest, would cost $51,275 yearly in principal and interest.

However, it’s expected that Ward 3 councillor Paul Whiteside will seek to utilize whatever reserve funds can be squeezed to limit the amount that would be borrowed.
