Fire board debates budget
Heated words were exchanged Monday at the standing-room only budget committee and regular meeting before the Board of Commissioners of the Lincoln Parish Fire Protection District No. 1 approved a preliminary operational and equipment budget to be published in their official journal.
Jim Hilton, administrative assistant for the LPFD, said the budget will run in the Ruston Daily Leader so that residents can view it. Then, in approximately 10 days, another meeting will be held. The date of that meeting has not yet been set.
