Matt Kolb, trustee for Greenville Township, stressed that township residents will be covered if an incident occurs. Darke County Media learned that several volunteer firefighters, as well as the volunteer assistant chief, submitted their resignations to the township trustees on Saturday. According to Kolb, eight volunteers that have submitted their resignation could be joined by more in the future.
Kolb would not go into detail, but did say there is a difference in opinion in the way the department is being run. When asked if the rumors were true that the township fire department will disband and the city of Greenville Fire Department would take over, Kolb emphatically stated, “There is no truth to that at all.”
The trustee was unsure of how many volunteers are currently on staff, but pointed out they do have several persons on Greenville Township Rescue that are dual certified.
