The $110,000 truck will replace the current 1995 Chevrolet ¾-ton “grass truck,” which the department plans to sell once it has been removed from service. Procurement of the new truck was made possible by a joint effort between Goshen Township and Mechanicsburg’s vehicle replacement fire levy passed in 2015.
