Tonight the Downs Fire Protection Board is meeting at 7:00 pm. I have no idea what is on the agenda since it isn’t posted online. They have a Facebook page, it would be nice if they would use it for posting agendas!
The people of Downs agreed to a tax for local ambulance service. There is talk about disbanding the Downs service and subcontracting service from Leroy.
I do not believe this is on the agenda tonight!
If you want to make sure your ambulance service stays local attend the meeting and tell the 5 person board. Stop it before it’s too late.
Citizens should attend these meetings. This is a largely ignored board providing essential services. Ignoring them could mean no service when you absolutely need it!
