Davidson Fire is struggling to find membership, has delays in response and has no sleeping quarters for their firemen at the station. However – the town spent over $12,000 on town leaders at a three-day retreat. Compare this to Huntersville – their fire department has to turn away applicants, responds to all calls in less than 5 minutes, bought a new fire truck last year and plans to buy three new trucks this year. Huntersville has three fire stations that the firemen can sleep, cook and live in and they’re planning station 4. How much did Huntersville’s town members spend on their three-day retreat? $800. A tale of two towns – guess we know what town has their priorities straight. Time for a change in town leadership … or I’m moving to Huntersville.
