Judge wants fire workers
By Zach Lindsey Webb County Judge Danny Valdez wants to declare a countywide emergency to prepare for the impending termination of a contract for fire suppression services to the county.
LAREDO MORNING TIMES
In late 2005, Webb County had concerns about fire safety:
41. Discussion and possible action on a resolution to submit a grant to the Texas Forest Service in the amount of $108,000.00 with a County cash match of $13,364.00 to be drawn from account #627-0300-3601, Interest Income Bond Series 2001, for the purchase of a large brush truck with a 1000-gallon tank for the Webb County Fire Service.
Apparently the issue of fire protection was on the table back then. Is this something that just fell out of vogue?
