Town disposing of Ladder 6


GOFFSTOWN - At Monday night's Board of Selectmen meeting, Also during the meeting, selectmen approved the disposal of Ladder 6, an unused fire truck that O’Brien said has virtually no value to the Fire Department. The ladder truck does not have a fully functional ladder or pump.

O’Brien said a similar truck with similar specifications was being advertised for $50,000 on a resale Web site. But that truck had a working ladder and pump. It would cost about $50,000 to $60,000, the fire chief said, to bring the Goffstown fire truck up to that condition.

As a matter of policy, the town will first check with other communities in case they have a use for the truck. Then, the town will advertise that it is disposing of the truck. If there are still no takers, Town Administrator Sue Desruisseaux said the vehicle would be sold for scrap metal. O’Brien estimated that it would be worth about $5,000.
