Ashland Accepts Bid to Sell Ladder Truck

During Wednesday evening's Ashland council meeting, a bid was accepted to sell the borough's former ladder truck.

Prior to the meeting, borough council had opened the sale for bidders for their 1959/93 American Lafrance 85' ladder truck, that had been used by the Washington Fire Company and the borough for 58 years.  The truck had gone by the nickname "Brutus".

The last incident that the truck attended was in August of 2016.

Borough Manager Ray Jones opened the one and only bid for the truck, which was from the Schuylkill Fire Historical Society, 105 South Jardin Street, Shenandoah for $1,234.56.

All council members unanimously approved the bid and the sale.

Fire Society member, Joseph "Blackie" Kufrovich spoke after the vote, thanking the council for accepting the bid and reassured they will take care of the truck and still include the truck for borough events and parades.

Ashland Fire Chief Phillip Groody also expressed his approval of the truck's new home.
