City leaders watched as a more than 50-year partnership broke apart through no fault of their own. Their former partner, Grand Blanc Township and its leaders have a vision of what the township will be in the future. Part of that vision is to have the fire department under their control.
This started with dissolving the fire commission and ended with their offer to the City.
The city was offered two options by the township. Option 1.) Come under our wing, but we won’t commit to keeping your station in the center of town open. City response time may go up because of the increased distance, but we’ll have 24-7 in our stations. Also, we can’t make a long-term commitment on your cost as we have no idea on total expenses. Option 2.) Start your own fire department.
