Works board tables decision on fire-truck sale

-A A +A

Neighboring community would like to purchase vehicle over time


TELL CITY – The Tell City Board of Public Works and Safety agreed last week to delay, at least until its next meeting, a vote to sell its 21-year-old secondary fire ladder truck.

The extra time will give the city of Cannelton an opportunity to prepare a formal offer for the 1993-model ladder truck that has a 55-foot reach. The works board agreed earlier this year to sell the truck, which has been used as a backup ladder and pumper truck since the city purchased a larger ladder truck in 2010. It has a reach of 105 feet.
