Work Session Scheduled for Culver Fire Truck Discussion

The Culver Town Council members will hold a work session on Tuesday, Feb. 5 to receive an update on where fundraising stands on the potential purchase of a new aerial fire truck for the Culver-Union Township Fire Department.

Firefighters are hoping to buy an aerial fire truck that would assist with rescues from buildings taller than two stories. At the official end of last year’s fundraiser in November, about $169,000 had been raised, short of the $200,000 goal.  However, donations are still being accepted. 

Discussions with town businesses and manufacturers have continued and Fire Chief Terry Wakefield is anticipated to provide the council members with an update in next week’s work session.

It begins at 5:30 p.m. ET at the Culver Town Hall at 200 E. Washington Street.
