Town to Get New Fire Truck
• Switching Waste Collection Firm
The Town of Provost plans to purchase a new fire truck and to also soon switch waste collection firms.
The regular meeting of the Town of Provost was on Tuesday, September 16 and following includes an unapproved summary.

The town will apply a 2008 municipal sponsorship allocation to the purchase of a new pumper fire truck. Town administrator Judy Larson estimated the cost of the new fire truck at $323,000. Fire chief Barry Johnstone says that the new truck will take the place of the town’s 1984 Ford unit.

Johnstone pointed out that if the new fire truck was not acquired by the town, everyone who owns residential or commercial property in Provost would see their insurance rates rise. The new truck is expected to show up here in November and the old unit will be kept as a back-up for fire protection.

In other changes, the town’s administrative and public works committee were to review the waste collection proposals and offer the contract if acceptable. Since the town council meeting, the administrator said that plans have been made to hire a new firm for the waste collection in town. The existing contract expires on October 1 and a new contract is expected to be signed by then (next week).
