Time for the City to pay for its new Fire Department ride

You've probably noticed the latest addition to the Prince Rupert Fire Department's fleet around town in recent days, as the city's firefighters get the feel of their new ride.

As we noted earlier this month, the PRFD's new Apparatus vehicle has arrived and as it moves into regular service, the time to forward the payments has arrived for the City of Prince Rupert.

At tonight's Council session, Council members will receive a recommendation from the Chief Financial Officer to authorize the borrowing of $338,904 from the Municipal Finance Authority for the purchase of the new vehicle.

The move for the most part is a procedural item for the night, Council last year gave the nod for the purchase of the truck, which will replace the aging apparatus/support vehicle that served for over two decades.

The vehicle was built at the Rocky Mountain Phoenix plant in Red Deer Alberta, more on the purchase as it was outlined in March of last year can be found here.

You can review the background on tonight's request from the City's Agenda page, it can be found on page 16
