member Christine Dicks Slatter said when he joined the department five years ago the depart ment was in debt In five years that debt has been eliminated and both fire trucks were replaced so it is not unfeasible for the depart ment to expect to be able to pay for an expansion The department receives a year from the county and holds some fundraisers But the bulk of its mon ey comes from residents of
