Sweet. Now you can see that Mayor Wongs plan is working. It has to make you feel good that the city has the money to afford these much needed vehicles to serve the city.

They actually need at least TWO new fire engines. They trucks they have now cost an average of $1,000 PER WEEK to repair constantly. they are towed by Aldrich and repaired at Ricky's truck service in Leominster. One engine just cost $11,000 to repair a couple of weeks ago.
