North Shore Fire Department to ask for capital funding
North Shore - The North Shore Fire Department Board of Directors on Aug. 11 approved a capital funding budget for 2010 and 2011 that will require the unanimous approval of the governing bodies of all seven members.
The department would buy a fire engine and ambulance under the plan. The purchases would not be under the annual budget cap imposed on the department.
Since its inception, the department has struggled to find money for major purchases because of budget caps. Under the funding budget, each community would agree to pay its share within 30 days of receipt of a bill from the department. Communities could pay the debt from fund balance or issue bonds to cover the costs.
