The second time was the charm as a referendum to purchase a new truck for the Vestal Fire Department passed Tuesday.

By an overwhelming margin of 805 to 240, voters authorized spending up to $699,000 on a heavy-rescue firefighting vehicle. Back in April, a similar proposal to purchase an $800,000 truck was defeated by just seven votes.

Volunteer fire officials say the vehicle won't cost taxpayers any money as the department recently paid off some older bonds, freeing up money for the new acquisition.
