Rockwood Fire Department may be adding a new fire pumper to its aging fleet.
Rockwood City Council will open bids for a new vehicle at 5:30 p.m. today, Feb. 25, before the regularly scheduled meeting.
The last fire department vehicle was purchased in 2000.
“We are getting to the point our reserve fleet — they are all over 30 years old,” said assistant fire chief Matt Crabtree at a meeting last month.
Crabtree said they spent several thousand dollars in maintenance on just one vehicle in 2012.
