(WEST CITY, IL) — The West City Village Board this week approved the West City Fire Department’s request to purchase a new fire truck for $235,000. It will replace a 30-year-old truck that has a number of mechanical and structural issues. The fire department opted to go with a new truck with a warranty in its purchase over a used truck. The fire department hopes to have the purchase finalized in a few months. The village board had been appropriating $240,000 for a new vehicle over the last couple of years.
