A change appears to be on the way for county fire coverage by the Union City Fire Department, and the cost associated with the service.
Union City Council members approved the first reading of an Ordinance on Tuesday afternoon, which could spark an increase in the annual $75 membership service.
Speaking with Thunderbolt News, City Manager Kathy Dillon explained what the new Ordinance means to those outside of the city limits.(AUDIO)
When minutes matter in saving a life or property, due to fire, Ms. Dillon said it was decided the best policy was to immediately respond.(AUDIO)
