Killeen City Council members could enact an ordinance Tuesday issuing $5 million in tax returns to exchange 5 fire engines and tools.
“Ultimately, in a perfect world, you wouldn’t want to buy all of these vehicles at once,” Killeen Fire Chief Jim Kubinski stated throughout an Oct. 18 native council workshop. “We didn’t inherit a perfect world here when I arrived. In fact, we have vehicles with a lifespan of 10 to 12 years at the forefront with around three to five years of reserve status.”
City documents indicate that the total estimated cost, including issuance costs, is approximately $5.7 million.
The City Council assembly is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. at City Hall, 101 N. College St.
