The New Holstein Fire Department will be ordering a new engine truck which it hopes to receive around the end of this year.
At the Wednesday, March 17 meeting of the City of New Holstein’s Committee of the Whole, aldermen approved the Fire Department’s recommendation to purchase the truck from Custom Fire which is located near Hudson.
The bid price on the engine is $583,986. The city and Fire Department have been saving for the truck and have $650,000 budgeted. Fire Chief Denis Mayer said new equipment for the truck could cost an additional $40,000. Those items include nozzles, hose, thermal cameras, a battery-operated fan, etc.
The new truck will replace the department’s existing Engine 22.
