City to sell old ladder truck

Norwalk is in the process of making a $900,000 purchase for a new ladder truck. Officials hope to get at least $10,000 for the old one.

After taking a couple weeks off for the holidays, Norwalk city council is back in action tonight.

Several pieces of legislation will highlight this evening's work session.

The first is a resolution authorizing the sale by auction of the city's 1983 Grumman 95-foot ladder fire truck. The minimum bid on the old fire truck will be $10,000.

A story about the proposed fire truck sale and other matters to be discussed by council was published in Tuesday's Reflector. You can pick up a copy of the issue or subscribe to the e-paper for less than $1 per week and read it now.

1983 ladder truck with probably 8000 miles,sounds like a waste of money to me! sell a 95 foot ladder truck to buy a 90 foot ladder truck,but you know how we are, gotta have a new one!

New one will look better in the parade

The motor in the old one is worth the 10k plus any other parts you can sale off it.

I just can't believe that this old truck, with minimal use is so bad that they have to sell it. What firemen want in most cities, they get. Just ask the citizens of Willard Ohio and their past debacles.
