When Mayor Neal Schwieterman and his family vacationed in Peru earlier this year, they were welcomed to the Town of Llave.
The mayor of Llave introduced Schwieterman as the mayor of Colorado and treated him as a high-level dignitary.
The Llave mayor also asked if the Town of Paonia could donate a fire truck to their town.
Mayor Schwieterman asked the town council to approve that request at its Aug. 13 meeting.
Paonia had received a gift of a 1984 Chevrolet pumper fire truck some time ago. This smaller fire truck can carry 300 gallons of water and will serve the needs of the Town of Llave, which has narrow streets.
The Paonia Fire Department does not need the truck.
The trustees unanimously approved giving the fire truck to Llave. The Town of Llave will transport the truck to Peru.blog comments powered by Disqus
