The firefighters of marktstetten have made a lot of work to get a replacement for their 32 year old vehicle LF 16. Since a new vehicle is not financed by the city, they have looked for a used fire truck and, after two less successful attempts, have now found one in lower saxony. After a thorough inspection of the 20-year-old vehicle, which is in "top condition" they now proposed the purchase to the city council.
Even though the cost is above the budget, the council unanimously approved the purchase on monday evening. The "new" the fire truck costs just under 60,000 euros, the old one is paid for at around 7,000 euros, the fire department association adds another 5,000 euros, so that the city ends up with 48,000 euros – a new vehicle costs almost ten times as much. The necessary installation of the equipment will be done by the firefighters themselves.
