By Nathan Diebenow

by Simone Wichers-Voss

At the Jan. 23 Bosque County Commissioners Court, County Auditor delivered the good news that the county received a preliminary “double A minus” rating from the bond rating agency.

Thanks to this rating, Bosque County will save over $760,000 in debt service costs over the life of the loan for an AA rating over an A rating.

According to Bosque County Emergency Management Coordinator Tim Jeske, who initiated and organized the training, the day focused on county employees, the citizens they serve and their own safety.

Raise the roof

Meridian VFD launches fundraiser campaign to expand fire station

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Meridian’s Fire hall was built in 1952. Back then, fire trucks were smaller, a lot smaller. With their growing inventory – more and bigger trucks – the Meridian Volunteer Fire Department wants to extend the present fire hall’s walls and raise the roof.

The 24 volunteer firefighters have recently launched a fundraising campaign with the slogan neighbors helping neighbors, because everybody in the community benefits from improvements made to the MVFD. They hope to raise $120,000 for the project. They hope to come close to their goal by Feb. 13, when they have their annual fundraising chili supper at the Meridian Civic Center from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
