The Poplarville Board of Aldermen approved the purchase of a ladder truck for the fire department.
Alderman Byron Wells said with the new fire rating and the seven buildings more than 36 feet high, the town was in need of such a truck. He said that of the seven buildings there are three in town and four on the Pearl River Community College campus.
Paper work is being completed and a binding agreement for purchase has been sent to Texas, where the truck is currently located.
