No need for bells, whistles

I notice in the Peace Arch News the White Rock fire chief’s recommendation on retaining the 1995 step van for use as a command vehicle, for a minor $4,500 upgrade.

This, in my opinion, is a frill.

I visualize in the future this van requiring major repairs and ultimate replacement, say in five years or less. This vehicle will then become a $45,000-plus replacement with, of course, all the bells and whistles added on.

I know we all regard White Rock as a thriving metropolis, but what would be so bad having the chief at the location with his portable radio equipment in his command car? Maybe we should share Surrey’s command vehicle or Delta’s?

Sell the truck!
