Greenbrier fire levy vote OK'd

By Tina Alvey Register-Herald Reporter

LEWISBURG — Greenbrier voters will be asked in March to approve an excess levy to support the county’s 15 certified fire departments.

The County Commission unanimously voted Monday to issue an order to stage a special election for a $2 million levy which will provide funding for fire protection services, equipment and training. In order to pass, the levy must receive approval on at least 60 percent of the ballots cast.

The Commission’s order also calls for the hiring of a fire coordinator, whose duties will include reviewing and determining appropriate expenditures for each of the county’s fire departments and assisting in county-wide purchasing and planning.  (click here for full story)
