AUDIENCE COMMENTS:

Mike Bart, 47640 Warrington Dr., expressed his concerns about Fire Department employees of full time vs. part time. Some years back, his wife had a heart attack at 5 in the morning, but they had to come from Grand River when there is a station at 10 Mile. This January, there was a fire and by the time employees arrived, it was a total loss. Given the tax rate paid for city services, he felt they should have a better staffed fire department than we currently have. Taking into consideration the four stations, they are only staffed 35% of the time and the others rely on part-time employees. He asked that Council look out for the safety of the citizens.
