Council approves new fire truck

Staff writer

Hillsboro City Council had a special meeting March 26 and approved the purchase of a 2004 Pierce four-wheel drive truck for $198,100 by the fire advisory board.

City Administrator Larry Paine said the council had the special meeting because the fire board had placed a hold on the truck and did not want to risk losing it.

The fire department will use the truck in response to structural fires and highway accidents within the city and other townships the department is responsible for.
