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
