The City of Castlegar has put a down payment on a new fire truck.
Councillor Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff says one of the department’s vehicles is nearing the end of its 30 year insurable license so they are being proactive.
Heaton-Sherstobitoff says it takes an entire year for a fire engine to be built.
She encourages residents to come to the public budget meeting April 21.
Castlegar homeowners are facing up to a $56 tax increase.
