Why close some and then build another? Why didn't they update the others if needed instead of closing them? That would save the taxpayers money.

Have a feeling Maplewood is much more monetarily efficient at running their city than St Paul is. But Coleman wants his finger in it so he can keep all his committees and boards and commissions busy, create more red tape and paperwork, and send Maplewood a bill.

In one article it was stated that closing the 2 fire stations was due to the part time issue and not enough fire fighters. It did not clarify if all fire fighters were part time. If they are, then Maplewood needs to make hem full time and staff them adequately and reopen those stations. What good is one new station near 3M when a call comes in from a home near Edgerton street and Roselawn Ave. They could not get there quickly enough if they are that far away. They certainly get enough taxes from the home owners. Maybe they can stop paying for not needed turnarounds and pay the full time fire fighters what they deserve. Maplewood is spread out and stations are needed in all areas so when a call comes in nobody dies in that house because the station 3 blocks away was closed.
