Engine 27 Will Stay

I wish I could have been there but a work commitment has prevented me from attending tonight.   

Frank Rollason, our interim village manager, checked our services contract with the county and it turns out our contract, still in force, requires the county to provide us with a fire truck and an ambulance.  And that 22 people from the village showed up to speak on the subject.  

It seems that Engine 27 is staying.  

That this was ever under discussion, that the county thought leaving us without fire protection was an option is frightening, and that the fire chief and the county mayor both promised then reneged that the fire truck would stay is deeply disturbing.   

Hats off to the residents that attended tonight.  You did it and you made it happen.
