Fire Dept. seeks $150k for improvements to ladder truck

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

SHIRLEY — The Fire Chief Dennis Levesque has submitted the fiscal year 2008 capital expense list to the Board of Selectmen.

The one-item list asks for $150,000 to refurbish the Fire Department’s 1987 Pierce ladder truck. The work includes enclosing the cab of the truck, which is a current insurance requirement, repairs to the body and pump, and repainting the truck and its lettering.

Levesque was unable to attend the meeting due to prior commitments.

The Department of Public Works will present its capital requests at the next meeting. — M.E. Jones
