A fire crew of its own

Dave Bawden hopes the Ramsey fire department questions won’t get lost in the city’s airport issue.

Bawden, chairman of the Ramsey Fire Safety Committee, said he has reservations about placing the question of establishing a city fire department on the same ballot as airport safety zoning.

Still, Bawden remains optimistic that voters will study the fire department issue on its own merits and will approve the establishment of a 35-person volunteer fire department in the city.
