Galion City Council passed a measure Wednesday night authorizing a new purchase agreement for a $695,000 aerial ladder fire truck and directed Auditor Brian Treisch and Treasurer Paula Durbin to sign the agreement.
Both ordinances were passed unanimously without discussion.
Following the meeting, Durbin said she would sign the check since it had the proper documentation she was looking for.
Treisch said everything will be ready for Durbin’s signature on Friday.
The $695,000 aerial fire truck was unclaimed at a Columbus company for six days after Durbin initially refused to sign the check, saying she needed to see an ordinance approving the fire truck purchase and a fiscal officer (city auditor) certificate certifying that funds were available and appropriated for the truck.
Following the meeting, Galion Fire Chief Phil Jackson said he’s planning a community open house to show the truck once they are able to pick it up.
