Springboro council pushes plan for VFD planning, merger

The talk at the Springboro Council meeting Monday, July 13, turned to concerns over two area fire departments that could close.

Those two are the Fellows Club in Conneautville and the Albion VFD.

Albion was recently in the news as that department appealed for more public support, expressed concern over finances, and held a public meeting. Projections were they could close in 12 to 18 months.

The Fellows Club [see letter in I Say! page 22], according to comment by Jim Glaspy, Springboro Council president, was that the Fellows Club may have just 8 active members. The letter just referred to notes no ambulance service taking place.

Springboro councilman Matt Rowland suggested that Springboro may be able to pull others in as Springboro VFD is viable, currently financially good and seems to be growing [social club].
