Here’s The Scoop

“THERE ARE RUMORS AND THERE ARE RUMORS”

BCbythesea hears….The VFD/LBTS relationship is in need of defining their roles….

When is the VFD a private non-for-profit corporation….its own entity….and when is it headed by its outside “parent company” …LBTS?…..

All are not happy with the lack of known guidelines….which seem to “blur” depending on the circumstance… which way the wind is blowing….leaving them frustrated….

VFD is on its own to negotiate with Sea Ranch Lakes or any other municipality…..but LBTS instructs from the dais and from the Administration….what they can and cannot negotiate…informing VFD the money they receive must go to the LBTS to be handled by the Town….

VFD is on its own to buy the required trucks and equipment….in order to secure their contract….but once they pick out the truck…the Town wants to own it…….

VFD has equipment that was “confiscated” by the BSO upon their termination….has kept the pictures/records/ continuously informed the public that it has not been returned/is MIA according to BSO/ returned damaged and unusable….and the LBTS Town Manager sits on the dais last Tues. evening and declares….”This is the first I’m hearing of this”….that LBTS received back all its equipment from BSO … and the “private entity”  VFD equipment….. that totals $10 thousand dollars ………. “we cannot go back and request an asset I don’t know they received or did not receive…. all Town assets were received.”….

BCbythesea….so even the equipment returned…..is not defined?….

BCbythesea….the Town Manager gave a wonderful power point presentation on the budget…previous post….maybe it is time to do the same for the VFD and LBTS….show those charts…. define the lines….so everyone knows where they are separate….and where they are not….in black and white….
