Letter to the Editor: Why do we need a fourth fire station?
Traveling along Stateline Drive located in Holday Island, I noticed a newly bulldozed site with a sign in front stating future home of Holiday Island Fire Station. Why does Holiday Island need a fourth station when there is NO police station on the Island whatsoever and calls to the Sheriff's Office taking sometimes an hour?
Reported by Kathryn Lucariello in the Lovely County Citizen, page 7 issue on June 6, 2014 was a article showing Ambulance tax revenue down, expenses up. With the 60 percent of Holiday Island calls being answered by contracted Eureka Spring Fire and Ambulance and assessment taxes being high, why does Holiday Island need a fourth substation? More expenses for maintenance and manpower.
As there is turn over of Commissioners, mayhap they need to do their homework and come forth with a balance for the needs of the Holiday Island Community.
