There is a story going around Ensign that one or two of the township board members would not support a request by the fire department to purchase a new AED.
The truth is that a motion was made (by those same two board members) in support of that purchase, and the motion passed on a four to one vote. The catch is that the fire department wanted the AED to be paid for out of township funds, and the board voted to have fire department funds cover it.
There may be different opinions about whether the township general fund should augment the fire department millage, but there is no arguing about who supported the idea of purchasing a new AED. Anyone reading this letter that isn't sure what story to believe can resolve the question easily ask any board member for a copy of the April and May board meeting minutes.
