Edgerton’s fiscal deficit was the main concern at the Edgerton Village Council meeting Monday evening.
Fire Chief Scott Blue told council he got a bid for a much-needed new fire truck. The cost of the new tanker would be $248,202, with the bulk of it to be paid by a grant totaling $179,550 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Edgerton’s Firefighters Association, according to the Bryan Times, has committed $30,000 to the cost, and possibly may come up with a few dollars more. The worst case scenario for the village would be a balance of $38,652.
Council President Trevor Weaver though, said he wasn’t going to approve the expenditure until he knew where the money would be coming from.
No action was taken due to questions about the village’s ability to come up with money.
