Scanlon proposes $1 million for new fire trucks

A proposal by Mayor William Scanlon to spend $1 million to purchase two new fire trucks will be one of the main topics of discussion at the Feb. 4 City Council meeting. In a letter to city councilors, Scanlon recommended purchasing two new pumpers that would become the main response trucks for the Beverly Farms and North Beverly fire stations. If approved, the trucks would arrive later this year and next year, and would replace vehicles that were manufactured in 2002 and 2006.
