Fire tower receives council approval

Public barred from comment on Tuesday’s consent agenda item

Many local residents packed the Craig City Council chambers Tuesday night to voice their opposition of the Craig Rural Fire Protection District’s proposed site plan for the construction of a live fire training tower in Craig. But because the issue was featured on the city council’s consent agenda, the public didn’t get the opportunity to say their peace. Alan Cashion was one of those Craig residents who attended Tuesday’s meeting, but was not heard. “I thought it was parliamentary manipulation,” Cashion said following the meeting. “What I would have said is that I was spurred on to do a study on this issue and I discovered the training tower is, at best, a compliment to firefighter training…it’s not essential.”
