Firehouse paid off, taxes down in Circle City/Morristown

There are 3 comments on the story from Oct 23, 2008, titled Firehouse paid off, taxes down in Circle City/Morristown. In it, reports that:

A recent review of the Circle City/Morristown Fire Department shows the agency accomplished a number of objectives during the 2007-2008 fiscal year, including taxes per assessed home value dropping to a six-year low, despite fire board candidates citing a need for positive change. Among other things, the firehouse was fully paid off and is now in debt-free status. The department currently employs four full-time fire fighters, five dispatchers and has 17 reserve firefighters on hand. A $60,000 grant awarded to the department has provided firefighters with 12 new fresh-air breathing apparatuses for fighting fires. Chief Harry Dame is also working on a new ISO rating, which he hopes will help residents see a decrease in their home insurance policies.

How about a new ISO rating in Wittmann so our homeowners insurance rates can go down? Do we need Chief Harry Dame?

anyone would help besides Welch. He has had many years to get it figured out. One thing is for sure, that Welch can't handle what he already has. Do not want to see what happens if Wittmann grows anymore. Or maybe he is Chief so his FELON son can have a job. or could it be so he can collect over $135,000 a year between his chiefs salary and the Fire vehicle maint. budget. Why not let Rios have the reins and bring this out of control mess to a stop!

I wanted to let readers know that Wittmann Fire Chief Welch met with me for a news interview this last week. I have plans to meet with Mr. Rios this weekend to do the same. It will be the first part of next week when the news reports get posted, and open for debate. I am still confirming information so please be sure to check back after Tuesday Oct. 28th. And make sure your friends, relatives and/or neighbors know about the Wittmann News Page-

They can enter the debate and conversations in regards to the contents of the two interviews and receive information, as well as pass on their own thoughts to help in making their decision for who they will vote in favor of. Thanks!
