Here’s The Scoop…Updates…VFD/BSO

SEA RANCH LAKES GOES WITH POMPANO BEACH…

BCbythesea and hubby ran into VFD Chief Bob Perkins ….he gave this writer the update on the VFD-SRL Bid…

LBTS-VFD lost out to Pompano Beach…

The reason….AMR…and the cost to SRL…. would have been in the neighborhood of $400 thousand a year…on top of the $70 thousand for the VFD!….

Sticker shock indeed for our neighbors in the SRL gated community…after “piggy-backing” off LBTS at a cost of $50 thousand for both fire and EMS for so long….

Pompano Beach came in at a reported $250 thousand for both service…still a steep increase for SRL….

Still …….. if and when….”Mutual Aid” is called by Pompano Beach….the LBTS-VFD must and will answer the call…..

For normal calls…Pompano will be the first responder….

Not known…how long the contract with SRL and Pompano Beach is….and if they will come for a bid from the VFD sometime again…in the future….

THE BSO AT THE LAUDERDALE BEACHSIDE HOTEL…..

Seems the accommodations for the BSO in their waning days of providing the Town with fire/ EMS service has changed locals…no longer at the Assumption Church….their truck seems to be outside the hotel on El Mar nightly….HMMM…….we thought they made a deal with the Holiday Inn….

More to come…….
