Campbell financial-recovery plan calls for volunteer fire department



Published: Mon, May 17, 2010 @ 7:33 p.m.

CAMPBELL — A new financial-recovery plan would call for an all-volunteer fire department and would ask voters for 5 mills in new taxes for the general fund.

Finance Director Sherman Miles said today that he, the council and the mayor all worked on the plan. Council is expected to vote on it Wednesday. It is to be presented to a state commission that oversees the city’s finances next Monday.

The commission oversees the city because it is in fiscal emergency. The plan must include a five-year forecast that shows black ink, rather than red.

Miles said the crossover to an all-volunteer fire department would occur gradually, with firefighters now on staff being allowed to keep their jobs until retirement. The fire chief’s position would still be full time.
