The Issue: Hobart is in need of a new firetruck. However, fire trucks can get very pricey. A couple bids came in, but one was rejected because the company did not follow the specifications provided.
The Decision: Unanimously, a motion passed for the firetruck. It states that the cost should not exceed $485,000, and it has been decided that people will try their hardest to reduce the cost even more.
My Opinion: I agree with the village putting a limit on how much can be spent on a new fire engine. Although $485,000 is a lot of money, they are trying to keep the cost low. If they can't keep the price in that range, they could try doing a fundraiser. They should seek out companies that have good quality firetrucks that also have good prices.
