Gloves are off in Bacon fire department/EMS negotiations

City and county officials fail to agree on which government will take over daily operations of Fire/EMS  — and under what terms — after tensions flare at joint Tuesday meeting

The Bacon County Board of Commissioners held a called meeting just an hour prior to the called joint city/county meeting last Tuesday, October  29, and made the decision to hand operation of the Alma/Bacon County Fire/EMS department completely over to the city.

“We have debated (this issue), and (running the fire department) is not something we want to take on,” said County Commission Chairman Andy Hutto.
