Potterville Fire Department May Be Forced To Dissolve
WILX.com is reporting that the City of Potterville's fire department is facing a very tricky situation that may force it to dissolve.
According to the report, department administrators and city officials are pondering options after one of the two fire engines serving the city failed a state inspection. Fixing the 25-year-old rig is too costly for its worth according to Potterville's fire chief. Replacing the engine comes with a price tag more than a quarter-million dollars.
Potterville City Council members will ponder both repair and replacement options. But, they will also, reportedly, weigh the option of dissolving the fire department and outsourcing with a neighboring community.
In the meantime, Potterville Fire Department will be assisted by Charlotte, Windsor Township, and Benton Township Fire Departments when necessary.
