BATH — The City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to accept bids from a Brunswick company for two fire department vehicles.

The council accepted a bid of $825,000 from Greenwood Emergency Vehicles, Inc., for an E-One 110-foot ladder truck with a pump, as well as a bid of $120,000 for a Ford/Horton ambulance. Both purchases were funded by a Bath equipment bond ordinance that received final passage from the council on July 7.

Councilors also granted unanimous first passage to a bond ordinance of $100,000 to fund replacement of drive chains for three clarifiers, which are tanks that collect sludge at the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The ordinance is to undergo second passage next month.

The City Council also voted unanimously to grant second passage to an ordinance that creates the city’s Museum District. The district is based around the Maine Maritime Museum on Washington Street. An update to Bath’s 1997 Comprehensive Plan, approved by the council last year, called for new land use areas that would be dedicated to city fixtures like the museum and the Plant Home.
