Letter — Combine fire departments

Now that it has been shown that the city can get along without a full time fire chief, serious consideration should be given to combining the city fire department with Lake Valley Fire Department. They already work closely together and already respond to incidents in each others jurisdictions, and in many cases are closer to an incident in the other’s jurisdiction. Cost savings for both could be achieved with having one chief oversee the combined, expanded fire department, eliminating redundant personnel, and achieve better efficiency for both city and county residents.
