  • Is county’s fire funding adequate?

    Is $25,000 adequate funding provided by the Grant County Fiscal Court each year to the five fire departments?
    Depends on who you ask.

    However, the county gives more money to its fire departments than most in the state, according Judge-Executive Darrell Link.


    Judge-Executive Darrell Link admits that the emergency services tax proposed by the Grant County Fire Chiefs’ Association would provide much-needed funding for fire and ambulance services.

    But, he doesn’t think voters would approve paying for a new tax during tough economic times.
