jlaizure said:Norman just passed a sales tax increase dedicated to public safety. The increase will allow for the hiring of 41police officers and 30 firefighters, equip and train them and build two new fire stations on the northwest and southeast sides of Norman.
plaws said:That money is only for the urban part of Norman. The rural part, Ward 5, won't get any tangible benefit. There are certainly intangible benefits, i.e. having more patrol officers will reduce the number of times both Frank units (who cover 150+ square miles) will get pulled into town and similar for the FD, but no definite upgrades out here.
The upgrades are sorely needed in town, to be sure, but they aren't applicable to the east side.
eharlow said:Yeah I forgot...Kerry told me about that truck. It's like the city's but you guys are using it as a fire truck also?
On the Norman tanker thing....I agree that you need one out east for sure....either 5 or 6's would work I'd think.....It could easily be a 1 man unit.
