Council Approves Fire Department Change

By a unanimous vote, members of the Cordell City Council approved an ordinance changing Cordell’s fire department from a volunteer department to a combination department.

State statutes require a volunteer department to have no more than two full time salaried employees.

A combination department, requires a minimum of three salaried employees and from one to 25 volunteers.

Cordell’s fire department has had three salaried employees for some time and the change in designation will bring the department into compliance with regulations.
