Perry’s newest fire station has landed another truck.

City Council approved Tuesday the purchase of a fire engine for Fire Station No. 2. The new engine will cost about $750,000 and will take about a year to build, Mayor Jimmy Faircloth said.

Council also had a first reading of an ordinance to rezone about 45 acres of property in the Washington Place Subdivision. A developer is building five townhouses and has requested to change the Planned Urban Development standards, so the interior width of some of the townhouses can be tweaked, Faircloth said.
