Who Owns the Fire Department????

Question:  Is the Town of Marlinton the owner (therefore service provider) of fire service?
If not, wouldn't it be a customer (consumer) of the service rather than a provider?
Can a "fellow" customer charge other "fellow" customers a fee for the use of someone else's service?

  1. Who cares? Marlinton is still the provider, and state law allows municipalities to assess fees for the service. Without the fees there would be no service. Without greater fees from the surrounding areas Marlinton (or the fire department, if you prefer) cannot replace outdated trucks and other equipment. The rating of the fire department will go down, and house insurance rates will go up. People will pay either way. Which way do you want?
