Extinguishing funding woes
County looks to give $6,000 each year to fire departments

A push to secure additional funding for Warren County’s volunteer fire departments could be paying off, but at the expense of other local organizations. The county Procedures and Rules Committee met to consider nonprofit budget requests for the upcoming fiscal year and voted to double the amount given to each volunteer fire department, from $3,000 to $6,000 each. “I think we should help them out a little more,” said Commissioner Teddy Boyd.
