This Can't Be Good

It's not really law enforcement related, but the City of Nolanville voted to terminate their contract with the Nolanville Volunteer Fire Department. While NVFD is staffed by volunteers the city paid for fuel and a few other miscellaneous costs.

The city already laid off three police officers and several other city employees and is in the midst of a financial crisis.
Miller said a new round of layoffs could leave just the department heads at city hall, including only police chief Lester Holsey Jr., at the Nolanville Police Department.

The city lacks money to pay its current employees beyond July and has two more months remaining in its budget cycle, Miller said.

"If we don't get some money, we can't operate a city," Matthews said. Source: Killeen Daily Herald

Let's hope things turn around for them soon.
