Seven Hills Fire Department is hoping to replace a 1997 fire engine, reports Cleveland.com.
The fire department desires a new $591,268 fire engine. Last year the city spent $16,000 for preventative maintenance for the old engine and the fire department wants to follow NFPA guidelines.
The fire chief appointed a task force to research the purchase of a new fire truck with the caveat that the truck cost under $600,000 — which can vary in price between $550,000 and $700,000.
Once City Council approves the expenditure, the fire chief will put in the order, which normally takes 12 to 14 months to build before delivery. The city plans to sell the older fire truck online.
