Rescue Squad lands truck
city donate truck Joe Johnson
County Commissioner Joe Johnson talked the city board of mayor and aldermen into donating their part of a utility truck to the rescue squad. The county donated $4,000 toward the truck.
County commissioner Joe Johnson pulled off the art of the deal this past week, landing his rescue squad a utility vehicle while allowing both the county and city to feel good about themselves. “I was hoping the city would help,” said second-district commissioner Johnson as he sat before the board of mayor and aldermen wanting to talk a deal on buying one of their old fire department service trucks for the local rescue squad. “The county commission has agreed to pay half, up to $4,000.”
