According to a report from Olean Times Herald, the purchase of a new fire truck for the Olean (NY) Fire Department received tentative approval from Alderman David Anastasia on Tuesday during town budget talks.
During the budget meeting, Anastasia gave the go-ahead to Mayor Bill Aiello to purchase the $625,000 pumper truck directly from the manufacturer. A lead time of 16 to 18 months is expected, and Anastasia indicated town will iron out the bonding for the apparatus.
One project not included in the town’s total budget figure is a $30,000 to $100,000 allocation to help renovate Central Fire Station.
The committee will meet again March 30 for further budget talks.
