THAT ALARM HAS ALREADY GONE OFF …….

You cannot unsound the alarm….We hear the VFD is doing “business as usual”… after a special meeting was held tonight and that tomorrow night it will still be Chief Bob Perkins standing at the podium for the VFD monthly report… This despite the fast spreading word of serious problems with his VFD application from 2005 that are said to be in violation of VFD-Bylaws …… We were told last week Perkins resigned effective July 1st …with that notification going to the Town the day after last Mon. night’s meeting  … A new Chief was to be chosen to be the interim Fire Chief until their next election… which we now hear will be in Oct…..The word  over the last week was an “implosion” was going on inside and outside of the department with varying factions vying for the interim chief position…as well as many different accounts questioning the Chief’s resignation along with contractual issues that have arisen from questions on the insurance for the VFD members and the background checks being up to snuff …. This would be required by any Town vendor especially those providing public safety … The VFD needs to be accountable to the Town and the taxpayers …Looks like they will finally get what they have long insisted they wanted from the Town …to be treated just like any other contractual vendor to the Town… If the Chief did indeed falsify his application …he should be terminated effective immediately, in this writer’s opinion … The taxpayers need to be informed by the Town that this public safety vendor as well as our other providers (BSO/AMR) are current with their insurance and background checks to assure us all that we the residents and businesses as well as the Town’s public safety department members are safe… The Chief should be ready for some questions tomorrow night….

more to come….
