The Political Agitator response: I learned that the Princeville Volunteer Fire Department is just that volunteer. Princeville do not pay anything towards the fire department. The fire department receives around 92% of $106,000 from Edgecombe County. The Fire Marshal talked about how the department operates and how well trained and staffed the department is along with the fire rating and more. Please watch to see how the discussion got heated up. For me I think the commissioners should have asked the Town manager to research and to see if what the Fire Marshal was asking for is something that the town should and could do in the future. I don’t know the Fire Marshal however he appears to be an intelligent and savy young man. I believe because of the way he speaks he somewhat intimidates some folks as if he is arrogant and all about himself. I believe he gave a very thorough report and that as he stated, the commissioners need to look at what is required of fire department, what it means to Princeville and the citizens. I left the meeting shaking my damn head because I thought that the thing to do was to again let the new Town Manager research what the Fire Marshal presented.
