Tomorrow evening, Tuesday November 13th, there will be a public vote to approve the purchase of a new ladder truck for the Clinton Heights Fire Department. We are seeking to replace our current ladder truck which is 20 years old.
The project's total cost is $1,045,080.17. We would like to use $600,000 from our reserve account and finance the balance ($445,080.17). This will result in an annual payment that is within our budget and we will not need to raise taxes to accomplish this purchase.
We intend to sell the old ladder truck to recover some of the cost thereby saving more money for our taxpayers.
Earlier this year, the fire district adopted a long range plan for the replacement of our most expensive asset, our fire apparatus. It calls for replacement of the ladder truck at 20 years and this proposed purchase is in line with our replacement plan. We feel that having a long range plan will allow for the best use of your tax dollars while minimizing surprise large expenses. We hope that you will support this purchase which will help us to serve you for many years to come.
The vote will be held on Tuesday November 13th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at CHFD Station 2 on Sherwood Avenue. ... See MoreSee Less
