I see that Porterdale has a fire department as well, and I'm not sure if they employ full-time firemen, but they should also turn that over to the county - as Oxford recently did.
I also thought that the comment by Chief [Wayne] Digby about the new radio system not working correctly was interesting. I did some research and found that apparently it's not the only one of that type that's not working as planned. If you search on the computer about MaCom OpenSky system, you will see that there have been problems in New York, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. I know that system is new; I hope 911 has not paid for it yet.
I moved here from California a few years ago, and one thing I have noticed in Georgia is a lot of duplicated government services, some of the small towns unfortunately may have to go by the wayside. Local governments should become more efficient and merge services like law enforcement and fire; it only makes sense.
