Grant helps fire dept. buy new truck
The Powell Township Fire Department was recently awarded a $100,000 grant from the Cliffs-Eagle Mine Marquette County Community Fund to assist Powell Township in the purchase of a new pumper-tanker fire truck. “With this generous donation along with the remaining balance in the Powell Township millage for fire and EMS equipment, the fire department was able to replace an obsolete 1979 fire truck at station No. 2 located in the Halfway village area,” fire department Capt. Brian Roell said in a written statement.
