    It makes no sense at all to keep approving new rooftops and lay off firefighters and EMTs needed to protect them. Developers should be made to help offset this expense. Stop building if you can’t afford to provide needed services.

    I live in Lebanon, but I work in Mount Juliet. Mount Juliet needs more fire stations and more firefighters and EMTs.

    Why are we laying off firefighters when there is a surplus?

    Not sure why we keep hiring more officers and want to lay off fire fighters. Is it because of revenue? Our high property taxes should cover costs like this.

    Stop giving tax breaks to builders and use that money to not only keep all our first responders but give them a raise!!!
