~~Agenda ItemsEach and every month the Public Safety Chairman has a list on the public safety committee agenda. It was redundant for most of 2013 and was brought to everyone’s attention at committee meetings and at each council meeting.
In light of the recent events, numerous residents have approached the Forest Hills Volunteer Fire Department (FHVFD) and questioned whether or not they should pay their 2014 Fire Protection Service Fee.
----- At the Committee meetings last Thursday, January 9, 2014, Mr. Tomasic told an outright lie. He publicly said that at the two meetings with the FHVFD representatives it was never said that the FHVFD was NOT merging but in fact that we had said that YES we were going ahead with the merger.
We have reviewed the information distributed to residents either at last Monday's meeting or have been picked up at the borough building. We don't dispute that all of these documents are in fact correct as they relate to the FHVFD.
A big THANK YOU to all the residents that came out to support us tonight!!! As you could see from the meeting, we are all very passionate about this fire department. Don't forget that the next public meeting, where you should absolutely be able to speak is next Wednesday, January 15th.
Despite the information that some residents have received (whether it be outright misinformation or misunderstood), the Forest Hills VFD has not merged with Braddock Hills nor are we in talks for a merger with Braddock Hills.
