Township trustees have approved the purchase of a new firetruck.
Trustees Arnie Clebone and Greg Cizmar voted yes during Thursday morning’s regular trustee meeting; Trustee Jodi Stoyak was unavailable for the meeting.
The Sutphen firetruck will cost about $485,000 and is expected to be ready for use in October.
Until then, the company will loan a truck for the fire department to use at no extra cost; it should arrive within the next couple weeks.
Raymond Capezzuto Jr. with Herb Fire, a sales company that represents Sutphen Fire Apparatus, said the township can choose the length of the truck’s financing, up to 10 years.
