KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) — A councilmember must pay back $6,000 in city money that was used to repair his personal firetruck.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/2blTqBg) Dave Adams was the sole dissenter in the 3-1 Kaysville City Council decision that was reached after hours of debate.

A three-week state auditor's office review found the expense questionable and recommended the reimbursement.

The truck has sprayed down spectators at the city's July 4 parade for a decade.

It was nearly nixed from this summer's event when Adams couldn't afford water pump seal repairs.

Parks and recreation director Vance Garfield gave Adams a credit card to pay for the work.

Adams did not comment after the council's meeting.

He has said he's happy he and Garfield brought the event together and that he'd do the same again.
