Maugansville to get new firetruck

The Maugansville Fire Co. expects delivery of its new firetruck by mid-August.

The original delivery date was to be mid-September; however, because of a very successful engineering meeting, the company was able to get the date moved up.

The fire company will hold an open house when the new firetruck is ready to be placed in service.
