I cant see building an entire new building. If the company will do it for $750 that's fair. Also what is the status of the tax increase that was going to pay for the new building? Will this money be used to update or replace the pumpers that the FD is using now?

The days of every small town having a fire co. are over... operating costs, and apparatus purchases are way to expensive.

Why delay the inevitable... just appoint Whitehall Twsp. Fire Dept. as the primary Fire/Rescue provider and get it over with.

Is it allowed for one municipality to use its voluntary fire dept to make a profit from another?

Miller has been a pain in the ass for years. how you can elect anyone for her position when I dont believe she never held a paying job with benefits in her life.Its all who you know and who you can BS. As for Whitehall taking over, it might work if residents of Coplay want to lose a little piece of their idenity.

Come to a Catty meeting...they wat to take property by "eminent domain" to BUILD a firehouse. Catty council is out of control and I just thank God elections are coming around. Watch out Vince, Jess, Brian, and possibly Tammy...It's time to elect people that are going to make the people of Catty happy, not make the people that drive through Catty happy....get focused or we'll vote you out!

Coplay Fire Department is under-staffed and under-equipped (read:unsafe). Whitehall Fire Department has the vollies and the equipment. Hockendaqua Fire can a truck to anywhere in Coplay before the first Coplay vollie gets to their station.
