With the Expenses increasing with each of the 3 Income/Expense Statements…and the constant purchases we are witnessing, culminating in a $150,000 purchase of the 102 ft ladder truck with nary a thought of its appearance of “over the top consumption” for this little  2 1/2 mile town, especially in these hard economic times the current VFD looks like they hit the jackpot!….With the 4% increase coming there way in October and their split of yearly town wide fire inspections the good times are guaranteed to continue under the current VFD leadership of the Vice Mayor-Deputy Chief!…

more to come….
