Fire Department requests replacement for 1992 Ladder Truck
During the March 11th Budget Work Session, and in previous Public Safety and Finance Committee meetings, the Palmyra Fire Department presented their case for replacing the current 25-year old ladder truck that serves the Borough.
FD Chief Richard Dreby and Deputy Chief Howard Roun, both of whom also chair the Department’s Ladder Replacement Committee, provided a PowerPoint presentation and answered the Governing Body’s questions regarding potential replacement of the aging and current Ladder 8015, a 1992 LTI that measures in at 100′ long.
The Governing Body is currently reviewing the proposal to purchase a new ladder truck, which is expected to cost about $1,003,000. A decision is expected over the summer.
