The Buffalo City Council, at this week's meeting, approved the purchase of a fire truck by the Buffalo Volunteer Fire Department and approved an amendment to the budget to allow the purchase.
The truck, a Type-6 Wild-land Fire Engine, was for sale by the BLM Office in Rock Springs for $12,000, but Buffalo Fire Chief Gomer Gammon said they came down on the price to $9,500.
He explains more about the purchase of the truck.
The type-6 engine can run off-road in more rugged terrain than the standard engines the city has which are designed for use on paved and improved roads.
The council voted to approve Resolution No. 1353 to amend the budget to accommodate the purchase of the truck and an additional $1,000 for hoses and equipment for the truck.
