The East Clinton board of fire commissioners has issued a letter of intent to the Sharon, Connecticut Fire Department to purchase their 2010 Ambulance for $30,000. The monies to cover this purchase will come from the 2020 budget surplus. The cost to purchase the vehicle will be offset by the sale of a vehicle to be declared as surplus. The purchase of this vehicle will preclude the expenditure of an estimated $150,000 to refurbish the current 2005 ambulance by moving the Braun “box” to a new chassis.
A portion of the next regular meeting will be set aside as an open forum for the public to ask questions regarding this planned purchase. The meeting is March 10, commencing at 7:00 PM. The meeting will be conducted via Zoom.
