This is getting out of hand! How much more could it possibly cost to keep firmen at the fire station overnight? The city council needs to get their heads on straight and keep those firemen there around the clock. We all pay taxes and at least the fire dept is something that is useful.

As a concerned Austin citizen, I have some questions.
1. When did the city council vote to eliminate 24 hour coverage?
2. How much money will be saved by not having 24 hour coverage? What is the dollar amount?
3. What does the fire chief think? Does he want 24 hour coverage or not? Nobody has heard from him.
4. If we are in a budget crisis, why is the fire chief driving around in a new vehicle?
5. What saving measures are being done in other city departments? Shouldn't we leave emergency services alone?
6. Why won't the city administer give you an interview, he has given other media interviews related to this topic?
7. Reading the news reports from the media on this topic, there is more questions than answers. Who's telling the truth?

Are you tired of local and state governments spending like crazy and taxing us to death? If you are concerned and want to learn how to hold these people accountable CAGWH and American Majority are holding a free activist training class next weekend(saturday) at the Austin Library. This class will be at 1pm and lasts about 2 1/2 hours. Please email Joel at [email protected] if you are interested in attending.
