MENIFEE – The Menifee City Council approved the purchase of new ladder truck for the city’s fire department at an Aug. 21 council meeting. The purchase is funded by Measure DD, the city’s voter-approved 1% sales tax, and it will replace an existing truck that had passed its operational expectancy.
“As a city, we are committed to utilizing Measure DD funds the way that voters want them to be used,” city manager Armando Villa said. “With the help of the Measure DD Oversight Committee, we have made sure that the measure is allocating funding to public safety, 911 emergency response services and keeping our roads, parks and infrastructure in good condition.”
“Public safety is our top priority,” Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department Division Chief Kirk Barnett said.
