For the past 2 weeks, I have contacted, in person, a total of 201 citizens and voters who reside from the Pinch Run area to north Bellaire, including West Bellaire and asked this question:
What is your opinion and thoughts about the recommendation by the Village Council to terminate Bellaire’s relationship with the Neffs Fire Department and provide Bellaire with a volunteer Fire and EMT Dept.?
Replies and answers:
- Retain Neffs Fire & EMT service: 189
- Volunteer Fire Department: 7
- Undecided: 5
I would say the citizens of Bellaire have spoken, 94% in this poll.
Since the council is elected or appointed to represent the citizens, I suggest you rethink this issue.
