Waaazup!, poet m a n?.Notice I spelled that loosely. So you are the editor huh!.Now i know why my comments are killed and not posted.I think you are afraid to openly discuss the truth,and facts about our! fire department.There is more than one way to skin a cat and go public with an issue.

a) Editors can't remove people's posts - All I can do is add or remove news stories. And I only remove stuff that is not relevant to Harpursville.

b) I was at the open meeting of the town - if you weren't there,you have nothing to say about it - IT WAS A PUBLIC MEETING.

c) There eas nothing charged to the town. The only vote was for a letter to the bank financing the new pumper-tanker, so as to get a slightly lower interest rate because we are a community fire department.

If you think something else happened, why not get a copy of the minutes of that meeting from the town?

Unless, of course, you just want to bloviate endlessly without actually getting facts.

Gossip is news for small minds.

A) I was at the meeting!.
B) I have a copy of the minutes.
C) My copy states (The president of the Harpursville Fire Company)was asked to explain their intent. He explained the retirement of the 1964 pumper tanker, He explained the need for a new pumper tanker. The new used Pumper tanker (only in service for six months)!. Comes with a factory warranty,it will be leased for twelve years, the cost; $250,000.00 including shipping!. Questions were asked about water capacity,flow rate, and how it would be supplied with water at a fire.
There were questions asked,and the answers given that are not included in the minutes of the meeting. And that includes your coments,read your copy. You will be amaised at how many omissions that have been conviently made to make it look like there was no opposion to the purchase. Well ther was!. I rember a request to reconsider.We need a water tanker,not another pumper tanker!. The minutes Of Resolution#38.08 states that the supervisor of the town of Colesville to approve the plan of financing for the Tax-Exempt Borrowing by Town Of Colesville Fire Co No.1,Inc. To finance the cost of the purchase of a pumper!!.
