HOPE THAT LADDER TRUCK GETS HERE SOON!

Gee Bob, I’m just wondering what your real problem is with the fire department…

3 Dick Chase July 29, 2010 at 10:24 PM

And do you always have to shout?

I would rather have given the 50k per year as raises to town employees than on a truck that will be mostly used in parades and fire truck days.

If there is ever a call that requires a ladder truck, Marlborough, Ashland and Framingham are just minutes away and we could give them 10k for the call.

We have great guys on the fire department, my problem is the wasteful spending on an item that we really do not need but want.

In addition can we fit this new truck in the station or do we now need a new station to house a truck we don’t really need. I already know the answer.

We want a new fire station and police station that we don’t really need.

Dick, I left out the caps but ……….

Bob, it’ll fit. If you took the time to speak with Jim Colleary of the ladder truck committee, you wouldn’t be worrying about calling anyone else. The need was demonstrated at numerous meetings, including Town Meeting. Please find a new axe to grind.
