LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote ‘yes’ for fire department levies

As citizens of Sugar Creek Township, and East Wayne Fire District, do you realize the fine fire apparatus both departments have to respond to whatever the call may be?

Just look at the response to the MARS fire, it was great. Many pieces of this equipment have been the result of grant applications. Grants have to be applied for, which takes a lot of time. Chief Kyle Nussbaum has been questioned about his pay as chief. His pay comes from a grant to fund fire officers, not from a levy. He is also a talented grant fund writer and has good success in securing funding for fire department projects. Be sure to vote “yes” for our fire department levies. It will ensure good response for our departments.

Retired fire chief,
John E. Sprunger
Sugar Creek Township
