The Ford F-550 dump truck has a stainless steel bed and has been busy plowing snow this winter. The township purchased the truck from Zook Motors of Kane through a state-contract program that precluded competitive bidding. The cost of $67,952.30 includes the whole truck package, including a snowplow.
Under a long-standing agreement, Wetmore Township contributes $18,000 a year for fire protection by the Kane Volunteer Fire Department.
