Randall to purchase new trucks

The Randall Town Board approved the purchase of two 2012 Ford F 350 pick up trucks pending financing. The vehicles, each valued at $25,793 plus $765 for options, including a snow plow prep package will be utilized foe Dive team and Randall Fire Department use.

The previous vehicles, a donated used Peapod truck was sold for $1700, and the town plans to sell a former ambulance and another smaller pick-up truck to help with costs of the new vehicles. In addition, the Randall Fire Department will contribute $15000 raised from fundraisers to offset the costs of the new vehicles, as well as paying for all of the emergency response lights, decals and other external requirements.

The new vehicles will be better equipped and better suited for First Responders, as well as the Dive Team. One truck will tow the Dive Team unit’s trailer, purchased used last month The Dive Team is part of a countywide cooperative effort, with Randall Fire Department providing three fourths of the dive team members, according to Randall Town Chairperson, Bob Stoll.

    Now I’m not trying to be mr. negativity here, but $25,793 for a four wheel drive f-350? And only $765 for the “options? Sounds like they’re trying to blow smoke up someones rear end here. New trucks, especially with 4×4, are never that cheap…..but hey, maybe the dealer is giving them an exceptional price here.

    If you don’t know what you are talking about, it’s best to keep your fingers off the keyboard/keep your mouth shut. Because once you touch the keyboard/open your mouth, it proves to EVERYBODY that you don’t know what you are talking about. Come to the town hall and see the bids yourself. Of coarse that would demand some effort on your part, and it’s much easier to be a keyboard commando…
