Requesting Money from the AFG
Quick Question for the experts:
Our quint is in excess of 22 years old and needs to be replaced (open cab, no pump, etc., etc.). We will be submitting an application for this years AFG to replace it with a new quint, and my question is this:
If a new tower ladder (quint) costs in the neighborhood of $750,000, would it be better for us to ask for say $500,000 and incur the rest? Obviously, $500,000 is far better than a Dear John letter.
If anyone has any experiences with this type of dilemma please let me know.
