WILLARD The city has received a federal grant that will pay for 95 percent of the costs for a new pumper/tanker truck for the fire department.
City Manager Brian Humphress said the city will have to provide a match of $8,750 toward the purchase. But, since the truck will be used outside the city, surrounding townships will need to contribute $2,975 of that amount. That will leave the city to pay $5,775 for the truck.
"Fire chief Rich Myers is to be congratulated on his work to obtain this funding," Humphress told council Monday night.
