Avery Fire Chiefs to meet PDF Print
Sunday, 19 August 2007 20:00
In a closed meeting tonight- Avery County fire chiefs plant to discuss the newest draft of the fire service contract. The deadline to sign was July 1- and even though a new draft has been released, many departments still have not signed. Firefighters have taken issue with a clause in the contract that would give the county ownership over firefighting equipment previously owned by individual departments. Firefighters also noted the contracts do not have an expiration date- and fear signing the contract would mean an eternity of firefighting for one year’s budget. Fire chiefs hope to work something out before insurance rates are affected.
