Union City Fire Chief Kelly Edmison Discusses Obion County and South Fulton FD on Firefighter Netcast
This show was originally recorded live on October 21, 2010.
Chief Edmison discusses what isn’t known about the situation in Obion County and how things will operate since the situation.
Dave Statter has the latest news out of Obion County/South Fulton Tennessee regarding the Fire Protection Districts.
Chief Kelly Edmison offered this:
The Obion County Court today (10/18/2010) voted 15 to 3 (21 members; 3 not present) in favor of implementing county wide subscriptions. Basically the county will collect the fees at the court house and distribute them to the 8 municipalities. There is definitely mixed emotions among the fire chiefs. Though this may be a step forward in getting needed funds into the hands of the departments; it is still far from the goal of having a fire tax or fire fee to provide 100% coverage for all county residents.
Commissioners also voted 17 to 1 in favor of an amendment that this issue of a fire tax/fee will be placed as a referendum on the ballot at the next general election in 2012. Read the rest here.
