The town of Montverde, Florida is selling one of their “big” firetrucks. Apparently the town of just 1,200 residents and 617 homes bought a little more firetruck than they need. From WFTV.com:
The two fire engines were bought about a year apart. In 2004, a $250,000 grant paid for one, but the town council agreed to buy the other one after a former Montverde firefighter argued that lives could be lost without it. […] But now the town is stuck with a $14,000 annual payment after putting $30,000 down. Chief Sette wants the town to buy a smaller, more mobile, far less expensive truck.”
If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a firetruck — who here hasn’t? — and happen to have $14k/mo. of disposable income, Chief Sette has a deal for you. “It’s an ’04. It’s basically brand new,” he told WFTV.
