Morgan County is on the hunt for a new fire truck, anticipating to spend upwards of $300,000 to replace the truck that was totaled in a wreck last December, which left a Savannah woman dead and a firefighter injured.
“We had an incident back in December involving the loss of one of our trucks and the process to get a new one has been going on,” said Fire Chief Jeff Stone to the Morgan County Board of Commissioners at the last meeting on Tuesday, July 2. Stone noted that a dealer in Winder could provide a four-door truck for about $325,000. The old truck was a two-door truck and posed some storage limitations, according to Stone.
“We want to move to a four-door truck so we can better store what we need to have with us,” said Stone.
