As it stands the south fire station is and has been fully funded for 24/7 staffing for FY 2013. If the crew at the south station is out on another call crews from the center or north station would have to respond. I also agree on the South & Salem intersection. A light is needed but a four way stop would be a nice first step until a light is in place. I travel thru this intersection in the morning at at night and have seen cars blow right thru the stop sign without even slowing down. It's not going to get fixed by complaining here. We as a group need to go to the town hall and make some noise if you want results. I am willing if any one else is.

we don't need 4 stop signs that drivers can "blow right thru". what we need is a smart light that lets cars out of south st at the times when we will get a back up of cars to brook st.
