Patrick Warner addresses board of supes

Oktibbeha County Fire Coordinator Patrick Warner addresses the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors at its meeting Monday. The board approved the purchase of two fire engines. 

Two Oktibbeha County volunteer fire departments will see new engines within the next year, following a vote from the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors Monday.

The board unanimously voted to purchase engines for the Bell School House and Sturgis volunteer fire departments after a presentation from County Fire Coordinator Patrick Werner. Although the county has historically purchased only one fire engine a year, Werner suggested the county purchase two engines at the same time to save money.

The board also heard from a citizen concerned about a vicious dog attacking his livestock. He claimed he had lost a dozen goats and one rabbit to the same dog, a very large German shepherd in the Center Grove area.

After his presentation, several supervisors said they would support taking a closer look at the vicious dog ordinance.
