Bids for a new fire truck will be opened by Dillsboro Town Council at a special meeting Monday, Feb. 25.

The 6:15 p.m. meeting will be in the city building, 13030 Executive Drive, and is open to the public. The bids are for a new rescue pumper for Dillsboro Volunteer Fire Department, but actual purchase of a new truck will be dependent not only on bid prices but on what funding the fire department is able to secure.

Meanwhile, at the town council's regular February meeting, Dillsboro Fire Chief Tim Heitmeyer told council the fire department had purchased some exercise equipment for members to use at the fire house. Now that insurance questions have been answered, it also is available to town employees and their spouses as long as a firefighter is present.
