The AFD training officer told the newspaper that when purchasing new vehicles, the department takes into consideration wehther it costs more to maintain and operate an aging truck than buying a new one.

The new set of wheels is thanks to a sales tax vote, according to a report by Fox News 12. The roughly $250,000 truck was paid for by leftover money from a quarter-cent sales tax passed a few year ago.
