EFD’s costs increasing

The city’s fire department is among the planned divisions for equipment purchases in the coming budget cycle, including new bunker gear and SCBA equipment.
Two items on the fire department ledger are the continuation of lease-purchase deals for a pumper truck and aerial apparatus, the latter a replacement acquisition after the burning of an EFD aerial apparatus at the Magnablend fire in October 2011. More than $160,000 will go toward paying principal and interest on those items.
