Mayoral Candidate Approves of Used Fire Truck Purchase

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Editor,  

I want to congratulate the Meaford Staff for endorsing and  Council for agreeing to a realistic stop-gap measure in replacing the ladder fire truck. Kudos to Chief Molloy on his initiative. 

Chief Molloy asked council to purchase a used ladder truck from the Parry Sound Fire Department.

The used 1992 ladder truck has 16,200 kilometres, and it is in excellent condition.  Just $7,500 plus taxes in comparison with a new truck cost of nearly 1 million.

Thanks for thinking of the taxpayer,

Jim McPherson candidate for Mayor

We've had similar questions with regard to the upcoming June 12 provincial election.
