The Culver Town Council members are moving ahead to join HGAC to get the best prices on equipment.
The council members voted in favor of a motion to allow Council President Ginny Bess Munroe to sign the papers with the purchasing consortium. The Culver-Union Township Fire Department is interested in a bid through Rosenbauer, a Minnesota company, for an aerial fire truck.
HGAC gathers bids from all over the country and then all state and municipal governments can agree to be a part of the consortium to get a state bid on equipment.
A bid for an aerial fire truck has not been approved at this point. Fire Chief Terry Wakefield said donations for the truck are still coming in which are appreciated. The Historical Society will be doing a program on the fire department this summer and it could be an opportunity to help gather funds for the new fire truck.
