GVFD claim on their website that they are a private company. However their funding is from taxpayers. I say lock up whoever stole the $47K, that's taxpayer $, not yours, Dick!

the district has spent over$65,000 in lawyer fees to get the volunteers out !!! and mike your right lock him up but its been going on for 2 years and there no charges yet. There was a contract for ems and fire service just like when the city hires a company to do road work with tax $$$$ do they get payed for the service
