Fire district's doors to remain open
Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa
Miner Staff Reporter

The lights will remain on at the Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District.

The Mohave County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted Monday to take over the district and appoint an administrator to run it.

The district is in a financial bind because of a drop in property tax revenues and uncompensated service outside of the district's boundaries.

More information about the decision will be in Wednesday's Daily Miner.

Fire departments once were not a business, once run by volunteers, to bad no one seems to have the intelligence, ability to figure out how to run a department that is merely on call for events such as fires, emergencies which happen on a infrequent basis, how does having a full time employee on call 24/7 doing nothing but sitting around a fire house make sense? I venture enough money exists in taxes to hire one or two full timers with certifications for medical emergencies, and part time volunteers who if need training the tax base pays for it, equipment and let them stay at home till a call is needed, this situation has a solution but it will require intelligence!

And who is paying for this bail out? It better not be the balance of the County! And especially not City residents.

Hmmm...did the board resign? And how much will this administrator get paid? Hopefully not like the temporary Principal at one of the local schools. Even after being suspended, he got paid over a year as I remember..

I know, This was a quick online update story...I'm sure there will be more forthcoming.
