Premont Fire Chief Jerry LaRue went before the Jim Wells County Judge and the Commissioners on Friday, Aug. 28 with the newest brush truck for his fire department.

The county had recently approved the purchase of the truck at a previous commissioner’s meeting.

LaRue told the court that the truck will be beneficial to their department, but most importantly to the residents in the southern part of Jim Wells County.
