During the last Bellaire, Ohio council meeting there were two decisions made by council.
The 1st was to not renew the contract with the Neffs fire department.
The 2nd was the implementation of a volunteer fire department for the village of Bellaire, Ohio.
Some have questioned the validity of the vote in council chambers due to the missing two members of council. The voting members were; Donny Maupin, Josh Meyers, Jim Williams and Bob Koteles.
Missing from the meeting were Lou Ann Bennett and Jerry Fisher.
I would like to hear more of the plans for the volunteer department as well as thank the Neffs Fire Department for years of service to Bellaire, Ohio.
As it was stated in council chambers, the contract with Nefs will be honored until the end of July, 2014. So there is no need for the public to panic.
If you have comments on the decisions made by your elected officials then you should attend the next council meeting at the municipal building on;
