Fire Chief Dean Adcock spoke to the Belmond City Council on several matters Monday night. He presented a long list of additions and subtractions for the department’s new rescue truck, which is currently being built. The changes amounted to an extra $4,771, which will be paid by the Belmond Fire Department Foundation. The council approved the changes. The truck, which should be ready for delivery in early March, will cost $574,885. Adcock asked the city to fund part of the cost of a new air bottle breathing system that will cost $49,948. The department has raised $40,450 of that amount, and has asked the BFD Foundation, the Rural Fire Association, and the City of Belmond to each pay $3,166 toward the shortage. The council agreed to do this.
