PGVFD Report – July 2022

Chief Jerod Vontz discussed the budget for next year for the Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department (PGVFD). In order to try to re-staff the department there will need to be an increase in the budget and our PGVFD portion will increase to $16.85 per month per residence. Mr. Vontz also reviewed the needs for replacement equipment and training so that we can maintain our current fire rating. Failing to maintain our fire service rating could cost homeowners hundreds more in home insurance.
