Dozens of Central Coventry Fire personnel were present in front of Superior Court Judge Brian J. Stern, along with taxpayers, fire officials from the town's additional three fire districts, Police Chief Bryan Volpe, Town Manager Tom Hoover, Town Council President Gary Cote, state legislators and legal representation for all entities involved.
