Rockland officials have approved applying for a federal grant that could help the city replace a pumper truck, reports Village Soup Knox.

The city came close to receiving a grant. The new truck would replace the 1990 International pumper truck. A previous study had stated the truck should have been replaced in 1996.

The new truck would be able to carry 750 gallons of water and also carry emergency equipment.

The cost of the truck is estimated at $670,000 and the councilors agreed to match up to 10% of the cost.
