City of Plymouth and Northville officials, firefighters and members of the Northville Plymouth Fire Advisory Board were on hand Monday to welcome the arrival of the the new 101-foot Rosenbauer Cobra aerial bucket truck.
A joint purchase of about $807,000, the truck will be shared and used between Northville and Plymouth. It will be paid for on a split based on annual run volume between the two cities. At this point, the truck will be on a 60/40 split with the city of Plymouth paying 58 percent and the city of Northville paying 42 percent, according to Northville and Plymouth officials.
In the next few weeks, residents will see firefighters training and using the new truck to get a feel of how to operate it. The truck replaces the current 1980 aerial bucket truck.
