So the action was swift at 7 p.m. Thursday during the special meeting for the $1 million purchase of two new trucks, one each of a 2020 E-One 75-foot ladder truck ($798,740) and the other a 2020 E-One VM8 pumper ($225,000) from Advantech Service ad Parts out of Midvale, Ohio. Council members approved the ordinance, which is using some of the revenue generated by a fire levy that was recently renewed to replace their outdated equipment.
