Well to be fair to Herb, no it hasn’t been suggested since the election. And I think most in the city now realize that it isn’t the smartest of ideas ever suggested by our politicians.
I’m not sure of where it stands in the plans of the city, at the time it seemed to be the child of Mr. Kumar, who has since left our city. But I think the plan was still being bounced around to have a volunteer corp to use as a back up to the paid service.
Perhaps someone more in the know could give us an update.
At any rate, I would think that running on a platform of a volunteer fire department, might be a ticket to not getting elected.
