Judge Orders Liquidation of Central Coventry Fire District

Superior Court Judge Stern has ordered the liquidation of the Central Coventry Fire Department.

The order came during a hearing at noon Wednesday at Kent County Courthouse.

The court vacated a previous order putting liquidation on hold, paving the way for the fire district to officially begin the liquidation process.

Liquidation shall be complete by May 16.

The court said fire trucks and equipment can be liquidated and sold to pay off debt.

Stay tuned for updates.

getreal, how long was CCFD part of a union ? Are you saying that before they were unionized the department was a shit show that couldn't get anything done? Then the union came along to right the ship and without a union firefighter there will be no public safety? Realistic, i'm thinking changes drastic enough for the cost of operation not to exceed the amount of taxes taken in.
