HIGH SPRINGS – The High Springs Fire Department is expected to get a new fire by year end. That came as news during a Feb. 16 special meeting in which City Manager Jeri Langman informed commissioners that the $283,000 fire truck could be placed into the budget through a budget amendment, which has already been set for a final hearing on Thursday, Feb. 23.
The new truck would become the department’s primary engine. The department currently uses a 1991 model year engine as its primary truck while a model year 1985 truck is secondary. After delivery later this year, the new truck would become the primary engine with the 1991model year truck serving as a secondary. The department would decommission the 1985 model year truck.
The first annual payment on the truck would not come until 2013. It would be financed over several years.
