WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The auction for Watertown’s heavy rescue fire truck is over.

The winning bid came in at $25,900.

Fire Chief Matt Timerman put the value of the truck at $25,000 to $35,000.

He’s sad to see the truck go.

“It’s been a great truck for us; put a lot of hard time for the city here. It’s got about 12,000 hours. The truck is just, you know, it’s just a truck, but it’s been a good truck or us,” said Timerman.

Watertown City Council does have the right to reject the auction price if it wants to.
