Here’s The Scoop…#4

Commission Meeting 7/22/08

NOT SO FAST

The VFD will be held at bay until November….

The Vice Mayor and the VFD should be grateful to those on the dais….who insisted on putting on the brakes….for an early in your face P. R. blast from the CIC “Party”….before the Town saw the VFD in action…to prove they have what it takes….was a disaster waiting to happen….

Some thought should be given before November by those that make the decisions….

How do you handle the looming question….of having a lifetime contract with a non- for profit corporation?…

This sticky point of contention will not go away….and seems to be a non-starter even for those who support the VFD…. they cannot wrap their heads around it….

A safety clause…or a change in the status…as a corporation….are going to have to be at the top of the “selling it to the public” list….

A change of the “face” of the VFD….. the most vocal members of the VFD are also a must….the new Fire Chief along with Chief Perkins and Chief Pointu…..need to be seen and heard….

BCbythesea…. The VFD should independently take this delay as an opportunity to get some professional guidance….plan a strategy….to bring with them when this comes back in front of the Commission….

more to come….
