you're either seeing the Taylor's or Jeff Pittman. Was wondering the same thing. But they will be some one on here to defend them shortly. Just wait.

This is the vehicle that can pass you doing 70 in a 45 and not get pulled.Whoever does drive it need a lesson in driving you are putting all of us in danger.They also like to get up in you and try to push you.Guess this is the advantages of being a SOPHIA-LITE.YEE HAW!I smell another law suit if this vehicle is in a accident.
well

Towns people have gone to Town Hall and complained, but just as neighbor says it all get swept under the rug and nothing gets done about it. I think its pretty said that people will take advantage and misuse fire department funds and equipment.

Well all you can do is not give money of any sort to the fire department and vote the mayor out...I don't know if they have bingo but I wouldn't go and discourage anyone form going...hit em their wallet just like they do us.

Here's the thing. Don't let things like this convince you that the levy was a mistake. It has done wonders for several fire departments. Potentially kept them from going under. It bought much needed equipment that could save lives! We need the levy to survive, but we need people to come in, save the day, and get rid of these people that are ruining it for everyone.

Well levy money they can't touch for that. It would have to be a diff account they're using. Like the fire departments personal account.

It doesn't sound anything different than what is happening at Coalcity fire department, the chief and his wife buy gas for there personal vehicles all the time. or well atleast thats what i was told..... I will not be voting for the levy next time i tell you that much.

why is it that every time somebody gets pissed at Jeff Pittman for not kissing their ass, they run to topix to start making shit up? Sophia Fire Department is in better shape financially and equipment now than it ever was. Guess why? Chief Pittman ; ) Jeff is the tightest Chief Sophia ever had. SFD just completed about 50k worth of construction with about 5% of it being labor. All this labor was donated by members and towns people who care about their Fire department. A department financial report is given at every town meeting and open to the public. bring all these complaints to the town meeting on Thursday or Shut your mouth! In fact, don't believe anything I just wrote and come hear it at the town meeting from it's source.

The fire department takes care of it's own finances. Come to the town meeting on Thursday and ask for yourself and get the truth.

well i have been to plenty of town hall meeting where the fire dept NEVER had a report turned in and then when you ask for one they have some excuse as to why they dont.....same ol stuff

and as for the mayor,he gets voted in ever time and sits and does nothing.

nothing gets done if sophia,
we have people that dont or wont clean around their houses or mow their yards.
their kids run all over the town destroying things.

people flying up and down the roads.

its a mess
whatever

the taylors are the ones that run the town vehicles all over the place. i have seen them driving the cars to work and the store and everywhere.
and Michele draws disability from her back but she can drive a fire truck and work on the scene of a fire.
someone needs to turn her into the state.

And what is sad is that one of the people mentioned doesn't even have license (expired) on their personal vehicle . I guess you don't have to worry about that stuff when the townspeople are providing you a vehicle to take care of your personal business with. It's sad weve let this happen. We should all go together to town hall meeting and demand our equipment be used for the benefit of all citizens.
