Gilmore City has a new 2024 fire engine pumper truck, thanks to the generosity of the local community and a helping hand from two local cooperatives.
The city took delivery of the truck in early December. It replaces a 1984 unit that was “getting pretty worn out,” according to Fire Captain and former Chief Bob Allen.
The project was buoyed by two $100,000 low-interest loans provided by Corn Belt and Midland Power cooperatives; both loans are for a 10-year period.
“We wouldn’t have been able to do the project at this time without their cooperation,” Assistant Fire Chief Scott Thompson said.
