I just drove by there seem the office part of it tore down. If I remember right the last summer they re framed a new roof and all that. No wonder our taxes are going up there doing unnessary work

Wonder what it would do to your taxes if it was a "paid" department?
Thank you Long Lake VOLUNTEER Fire Dept for all you do!

No need to start name calling. Just simply stating that that department has saved tax payers a lot of money by being volunteer and if they felt a new station was needed then so be it! I'm sure there was a good reason for the roof a few years ago. Maybe that was the only option at that time?

It doesn't cost the taxpayers a dime! The fire dept gets grants for upgrades on the building, new equipment, fire trucks, etc...it's a volunteer dept not PAID!! Big difference

just to clear up the bitching and moaning. The updates to the Long Lake Fire Dept. are being paid for by grants that became available much like the updates to the granite city police station and fire department. This is not costing the tax payers extra money. Even though it seems that it isnt really needed it actually is since they are also supposed to get new bigger equipment. Now do your research before you go off bitching about crap.

the grant is not from local tax payers. Yes the money does come from taxes but it is federal taxes you pay anyhow no increase in tax rates or anything like that it is also money that is set aside for these type of projects. It wasnt taken out of some other purse and if it wasnt used in pontoon it would just go into some purse in chicago. be grateful the upgrades are here not in the big drain on our states tax dollars.

To everyone that's bitching about the Long Lake Fire Dept..When your house is on fire or you or your loved ones have a medical emergency I bet you wouldn't hesitate calling on them to rush to your house to put out the fire or have one of the firefighters perform CPR on your loved one. These men and women give up their time for free to save your loved ones and your homes! Get real people..I'd much rather see money going for a good cause then be waisted on something that has no benefit to the public. Good gracious..

Before you start calling anyone an idiot/dumbass, please read what you typed out, or should I say tried to type out! What in the heck does this "Ur just a inbreed dumbass for honking anyone would bash the people that save our" mean? I'm just curious. A toddler can write better than you. Why don't you worry about getting an education and not worry about why a roof was torn down and replaced! I think it's people like you is why our country is so messed up - and for the record it's not effects, it's affects!
