Old fire truck and other items to be auctioned April 19

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

An old firetruck that the president of the Cloverdale Town Council said would be of no use to any fire department is among a variety of items that will be up for auction April 19.

The final list for this auction is due by March 19 but is believed to include dump trucks, police cars, and currently a 1973 Mack firetruck.

Don Sublett, town council president, said the firetruck was not old enough to be listed as antique, but too old to be of any use to a fire department.

In other business:

* The Motorcycle Ride for Cancer asked for more support from local businesses for their function.

* In regards to the sewage treatment plant, these items were discussed: butterfly valves needed for blowers with no estimated cost of yet, and three seal failure on pumps.

A final walk-through is set for March 27 when the council members will tour the facility.

* The offices in Town Hall are to be painted by Jack Abbott.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Horse Arena is set for Thursday at 2 p.m. and is open to the public.

* All town council meetings between November and the end of February must be transcribed due to a pending lawsuit.

The Cloverdale Town Council meets regularly the second Tuesday of each month at Town Hall in Cloverdale. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.

    I've heard of this guy, isn't he a big time businessman from Genoa City? Kinda young, and a little bit restless?

  • Evidently the "pres" doesn't have a clue about fire trucks. Sure the trucks got some age, but could be of some use to a smaller dept. that has a limited budget and cant afford new trucks. Sure its not all shinny but it runs and pumps water. In fact i know it'll out pump most trucks in the area. But hey, thats not important, gotta have the shinny ones so we can look purdy.
