Official newspaper, electric supervisor, and old firetruck lead Council agenda

Members of the Brady City Council will meet for the first time this month in Council Chambers, Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. On the agenda under discussion and action items, the Council will first hear a request by Mary Ann Smith to discuss the designation of the official newspaper for the 2002 fiscal year. Following the discussion item, the Council will take official action on designating the official newspaper for the City of Brady. In other business, the Council will consider and act on appointing Jesse Castanuela as electric supervisor. The final action item on the agenda concerns the sale of a surplus fire truck. According to Brady Fire Chief Johnny Elliott, the fire truck up for sale is a 1973 model Ford F900. It is a hydrant pumper that was recently replaced by a new Pierce attack pumper. Elliott added that the new replacement truck can capacitate 1,000 gallons of water compared to the older model that can only hold 300 gallons. In addition, the new fire truck can pump out 1,240 gallons of water per minute where as the old one can only handle 750 gallons per minute.
