Truck's Final Call
City Hall donates good ol' 267
pumper truck to UFV
nit #267 is a life-expired fire pumper truck that has recently been replaced with a new unit and has therefore been taken out of service.
The usual procedure when equipment has
reached the end of its service life is to dispose of the unit at public
auction pursuant to Council Policy No.C-3 - Disposal of Municipal
Furniture and Equipment.
Unit #267 has a Detroit Diesel 6V92 350hp engine which would be ideal for the UFV program and would allow the students to work on an engine that is very common to heavy duty vehicles in BC.
As the potential disposal value of the fire truck is low it is recommended that unit #267 be donated to UFV for the trades school to incorporate into their training programs. As the donation of this truck falls outside of the directives of Policy C-3, Council approval is required for the donation to take place.
Editor's Note: This motion hasn't been carved in stone because it's not been voted on by City council yet. Tuesday, Feb 7, is the next council meeting.
