The Carrollton Fire Department will finally have a new(er) ladder truck.
Council approved a resolution to purchase a 1999 Pierce Dash 85-foot Aerial Platform fire truck from the Denver Volunteer Fire Department in Denver, N.C.
The city budgeted $325,000 in the 2016-2017 budget and will spend $263,000. Mayor Robb Adams said a new ladder truck would have cost about $950,000. The city applied for an AFG grant toward a new ladder truck, but were unsuccessful.
