Not that easy. You have the idiot politicians on both sides who have the ultimate say so in the matter.
Forest Hills VFD is a well run outfit but once you get the moronic politicians involved it'll be a mess.
1) Because politicians want to have the ultimate say so with minimal knowledge
2) Because small town politicians think they know best when they have no clue at all .

If you want to see a merger you need to keep the politicians out of it until the end.

They should be merging all these loca VFD's same as they should do with most of the small town services all over the county.

But, it's the small town politicians who won't let it happen...
