ENTERPRISE PHOTO I JULIE SHIELDS Mayor expresses board&apos;s support for city's volunteer fire department The Clarendon Board of Alder- men expressed its admiration for the members of the city's volunteer fire department during its regular meet- ing last Tuesday. City Hall and the fire depart- ment had previously had questions regarding the monthly reporting of fire department expenses to the city. First Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Powell explained that the department provides receipts for expenses covered by city funds. All of the department's expenses are reported to the city, Powell said, but receipts are not provided to City Hall for expenses covered by county funds or donations. Mayor Chris Ford said he and the board appreciated the explana- tion, apologized for any misun- derstanding, and pledged better communication with the department. "We are 100 percent behind the fire department, and we think we have the best volunteer fire depart- ment in the State of Texas," the mayor said. In other city business, the board approved a resolution calling for an election to elect three aldermen to be held on May 8. City Administrator John Webb updated the board on the water tower project and issues with city streets, and he presented a copy of the alco- hol election code to the board. No official petition is known to be circu- lating at this time. Webb also informed the board that he had reactivated his law enforcement license and said he was going to reactivate the office of ity Police for the purpose of overseeing code enforcement and animal con- trol. Some board members expressed concerns about this, noting they did not want to get into law enforcement and did not want the administrator to get too spread out. Webb said he only wanted to do code enforcement and animal control, noted that the city is under contract with the Donley County Sheriff's office through Sep- tember 2010, and said, "I am not starting a police department."
