May 10th is fast approaching! Be sure to tell everyone you know and also turn out to vote ‘YES’ for the Monongalia County Volunteer Fire Levy. With only 1 full and 1 partial paid fire department in the county the vast majority of citizens in Monongalia County are covered by your friends and neighbors, citizen volunteers, to protect your life and property. Without the funding associated with the levy our departments will not be able to replace and/or repair our aging equipment and in the most dire of circumstances will have to reduce services or dissolve the department entirely. In the case of your local department closing your home insurance coverage is in jeopardy of being dropped or significantly increased due to being seen as an ‘unprotected’ structure. HELP US, HELP YOU on May 10th and vote ‘YES’.
