Personally, I have no problem with them laying off fireman the Fire department should of been volunteer years ago. What I have a problem with is why every department is taking a hit because they can no longer afford to rob the sewer fund as its almost broke they still have the sewer contract with Floyd Hunter. This sweetheart contract was given out by the mayors Uncle and its time to stop this contract. If they really are serious about saving money they should stop this.

City did not pay anything for the Stoplight that money came from a state safety grant for $193,000 that Eble applied for after being tasked with the job of rebuilding the old one for.$54,000. That City received from insurance company after a semi ran over the old one. He turned a deficit into a surplus of $35000 now that is impressive
