Tower City Fire Dept. meets with residents

Fire tax ballot question main topic discussed

By Rob Wheary, Staff Writer •

TOWER CITY – Close to 50 residents met with line officers of the Tower City Fire Company to clear the air about a ballot question for a proposed fire tax to be added to residents’ property taxes.
What came out of that was a two-hour discussion on Aug. 15 between the firefighters and the public, giving residents insight about how the fire department is operating now and the future of the department.
Much of the talking on behalf of the company was done by line officer Marcus Riddell, who also serves on Tower City’s borough council, fire company president Ross Baker, and fire chief Mike Keiter. When Riddell joined the fire company, he asked about how much support the borough gives to its only fire company.
