The Board of Selectmen has announced that an independent engineer has determined that the town is in need of a new fire truck in order to better protect the residents.

Specifications for the new fire truck are similar to the existing 1992 truck, with the exception of regulatory updates and certain crew safety features that were unavailable in 1992.

Residents are invited to review the engineer’s report which is available at Town Hall, the Library and the Mill River and Southfield general stores.
