This six-member authority was established in 1987 and is comprised of three appointees from the city and three appointees from the county.

The proposal for a new ARFF vehicle and station, covered by AIP-28, is complete and Galloway brought the contracts that were ready for approval signatures.Good thing the VDT was there.
“The way this contract is written is not where the mayor can sign it, it’s where we can actually sign it,” explained Galloway.
