The Pleasant Township fire department will soon have a new vehicle in its fleet.
At the April 23 meeting, the trustees approved the purchase.
The township will buy a 2017 Ford Explorer outfitted with necessary equipment at a cost of $30,700. It will replace the fire chief’s current truck which is beginning to rust and need repairs more often.
“I think it’s a perfectly suitable vehicle for what I use it for,” said Fire Chief Brian Taylor. “It’ll handle the call volume that I respond to. We are getting it for six or seven thousand less than it is worth.”
The old truck will be placed up for sale on govdeals.com when the new vehicle is ready for service. Other items from the township are already available on the site.
The Pleasant Township spring clean-up will take place April 26-27 at the fire department, 5373 Norton Road. All electrical items that can be recycled are welcome to be dropped off for recycling and large items, including tires, can be dropped into a large trash container on site. The event will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 26 and from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 27.
All items must be unloaded from your vehicle and into the Dumpster on your own. No hazardous waste will be accepted.
If you have any questions on what can and cannot be dropped off, contact the fire department at 614-877-4375.
