Councilor McKenzie before you start believing Stith start reading what the firefighters in the know have to say

See here, the used truck we got is better then the truck we had.  It holds more water; has a bigger pump; and has passed a pump test which the old truck just barley passed the last time It was tested.  It probably won’t pass this go around.

The used truck we knew needed some work to fix some problems it had and when we were in the department we had plans on fixing most of the problems ourselves to save the town money. The funny thing is that the shop southern truck told us the truck was well worth 15,000.

They even said we could sell it for more then 30,000.  They also said the problem with the oil leak was the timing chain cover and that it was not to bad to change but it would cost more in labor then anything because they charge like $35 an hour for labor so that is the reason we had planned on doing the work ourselves with a certified mechanic. The cost of the parts were about $150 yes the work would have taken a little while but it would have been fixed. So Steve can say what he wants but he is going to lie and say whatever he can to make himself look like the real big hero he ain’t. $15,000 for a truck that runs and drives ain’t bad. Hell if he is smart he might even look at what it would to trade both trucks in for a brand new one or look into a grant to get both trucks repaired an updated an brought into the 21st century. Just my thoughts and opinion.

  1. Well maybe they will use the money they over charged the state to pay for Folk Fest. $3000 paid to White Springs to have the “fire department” there. White Springs paid Hamilton county EMS $2000 to be there. Now every one please ask yourselves why the White Springs fire dept could not be there? ANSWER.. Because we do not have one!
