How best to start rebuilding the department is to sell your aging fleet and take monies from the sale of aging fleet and buy more updated equipment. Since you have had to deal with the cutbacks and you seem to have some control over your spending habits. That's why selling old fleet and then using that money to purchase better equipment is a good deal for all involved. You may have to get into the money you all ready have accumulated to finish purchasing the newer equipment and that should be done only if you can agree on what is truly needed and not just a luxury. Do not pass the buck to an all ready over taxed community. We are pleased that with all of the trouble you have been through that you have come out ahead of the game. We as a community need you but we too have to pinch our pennies. We do not have the community to go to for extra spending as you guys are so willing to do. We do not mind giving of our money as long as it it spent properly.
