HOQUIAM MAY SEEK LEVY FOR NEW FIRE ENGINE

The may go to the public for funding of a new piece of equipment for the city’s Fire Department. After over 30 years, the departments aerial hose or snorkel engine is beginning to show signs of age, suffering a breakdown that would cost $30,000 to repair. Rather than put that much money into the aging engine, the city is interested in a voter levy to replace the engine, possibly a ten year, $1-million levy that could go to the voters in the spring or summer. In taking the engine out of service, the department will rely of Aberdeen’s aerial unit for large structure fires.
