WCVFD Woes: An ongoing dispute between the Westlake Community Volunteer Fire Department and Liberty County Emergency Services District #3 has left that area of the county with sharply reduced fire protection. Angela Ungles, the treasurer for the Westlake Community Volunteer Fire Department, said her fire department is out of money and unable to pay for vehicle insurance to operate their fire-fighting equipment. For now, if there was to be a fire in that Westlake area, those volunteer firefighters say they will respond in their own vehicles and do their best battling a blaze until other nearby departments can provide fire suppression vehicles and mutual aid. Westlake is a few miles south of Dayton off of FM 1409. In a related matter, the Westlake Community Volunteer Fire Department is holding a Fill the Hat fundraiser tomorrow starting at 9 a.m. at the Leonard’s Chevron on FM 1409. They plan to utilize the money raised to pay for insurance so the department’s volunteer firemen can continue to serve the 3,400 residents in their service area.

Border Security: State Representative John Otto has added his support for the actions of Texas Governor Rick Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus to spend $1.3 million per week for additional security along the Texas-Mexico border. John Otto said the recent surge of illegal immigrants, many of them unaccompanied children, into the Lone Star State is both a security and humanitarian crisis. The Dayton Republican said border security is the responsibility of the federal, not state government, but Washington’s failure to act leaves the problem in our hands.
