Monday, Walker County Commissioners approved $18,343 to participate in the cost of new fire truck for Riverside.
Dick Goldin, assistant to the Riverside Fire Chief, was at the meeting and filled us in on the other financial aspects . . . .
The big donation came from Frederick “Fritz” Weinzierl through a birthday gift for his nephew John Weinzierl who wanted to give the City of Riverside a fire truck.
Goldin said the truck, dedicated last Saturday, will probably become operational in the next week. The fire truck will also benefit the entire county, since various fire departments cooperate.
