Lehighton could spend up to $387,562 for a custom pumper truck for its fire department.
On a 5-0 vote, borough council on Monday agreed to purchase the truck for the fire department from KME of Nesquehoning.
Borough Manager Nicole Beckett said council is awaiting the final proposal from KME.
Beckett said the pumper will be purchased from out of the borough's fire apparatus fund.
The borough had implemented a half-mill tax for fire apparatus purposes over a decade ago, she said.
