On Tuesday, the Board of Directors held a meeting to consider the purchase. In a 3-2 vote, the district decided to not put on hold one of the Austria-based Rosenbauer International M91X fire response units, the biggest issue being the $1 million plus price tag.

Firefighters in Santa Cruz have been inspecting the new vehicle for their fleet, so the truck may still appear on the street.
