Mulhurst Bay and South Pigeon Lake fire departments purchase new trucks

County of Wetaskiwinfire protection society financial statements approved in good order

The Mulhurst Bay Fire Department has been approved for the purchase of a new rescue truck, and the South Pigeon Lake Fire Department is scheduled to purchase a pumper truck.

County of Wetaskiwin councillors saw a number of items relating to fire departments operating within the county during their June 6 general meeting, including multiple equipment purchases and financial statements.

Councillors approved purchasing a 2018 rescue truck for the Mulhurst Bay Fire Department from Rocky Mountain Phoenix/Rosenbauer for $324,207 plus GST.

“Rocky Mountain Phoenix, being the lowest, met all the specifications,” said Mike Zajac, director of emergency services.

The funds are being allocated from: Zone 3 operating reserve, Zone 3 capital levy, Mulhurst Bay operating reserve, and Mulhurst Bay capital levy, totalling $249,690. This leaves a $74,517 over expenditure, which will be paid off next year with funds from the Zone 3 capital levy and Mulhurst Bay capital levy.

A 2018 pumper truck for the South Pigeon Lake Fire Department will also be purchased from Rocky Mountain Phoenix/Rosenbauer, for $480,310 plus GST.

“Rocky Mountain Phoenix was the cheaper of the two (tender bids),” said Zajac.

“They won’t be running an over expenditure when they make this purchase,” he added.

During their meeting council also accepted the financial statements from the Wetaskiwin Rural Fire Protection Zone 2 Society, the East West Millet Rural Fire Department Society, the Mulhurst Bay and District Fire Protection Society, the Winfield and District Fire Department Society, and the Wetaskiwin Zone 5 Fire and Rescue Society.
