Reidland-Farley Fire Board Mediates Changes
By Chris Taylor
Paducah, KY – The board governing McCracken County's Reidland-Farley Fire District voted to approve the recent organizational changes brought about by Chief Richard Tapp. He recently restructured the department, removing some veteran firefighters from leadership positions because they had not taken federally mandated training courses, a requirement to accept federal grant money. WPSD reports Tapp recently applied for a $900,000 federal grant to buy a ladder truck. The board addressed the grant application, suggesting to withdraw it because even with the hefty funds, the department would still own some $45,000. Tapp is expected to withdraw the request today and seek authorization from the board before applying for future grants.
