City Proposes Budget Cuts For The Brainerd Fire Department
The Brainerd Fire department held a press conference in front of the Land Service building. The purpose of the conference was for the department to try to garnish support from the community. The city government is trying to propose cuts to the local department. And they are not happy about it.
The cuts are for financial reasons. The city is trying to save money. However the impact of these cuts will not have a drastic impact on individual families. Brainerd Firefighters are worried that the cuts will reduce the level of service and increase response times. The firefighters are hoping that their voices will be heard and that the community will stand by them just like they stand by the community everyday.
