It is important to remember what this issue really is about. A poor purchase of a Utility in 2003, not enough due diligence and finding out this utility had 4 inch supply lines throughout certain parts of the city which not only gives poor pressure for fire fighting, but also to houses. This will be fixed no matter what. The big question is can we wait just 18 months to accomplish the fix without a new pumper truck and 3 new firemen on the payroll? It seems we can, looking back and seeing we've dealt with this since 2003. If you give Chief Murphy his new pumper and 3 people, we'll own them forever and still have to fix the problem. The UAB gave a good assessment and showed how to do this without spending $260,000 per year and adding more employees, but since the council won't listen to any of their other recommendations, why should they listen to this one.
