Fire service fight continues

Letter to editor

POSTED: May 13, 2013 10:40 a.m.

Editor: I see that Liberty County is still trying to take away Midway’s fire department by using fear tactics.  If Liberty County wants full-time firefighters in Midway, all the county has to do is send some of Midway’s property taxes back to the city so that the city can hire the full-time firefighters.
The city council is right in not giving up control of its fire department. This is just another power grab by the county. The Midway fire department also covers some of Liberty County outside of the city, and all the county pays the city is $12,000 a year for this service.
