SPRINGHILL – The bill pre-filed for this year’s legislative session to help raise funding for the Springhill Fire Department will be pulled when the session starts in April.
Rep. Gene Reynolds, District 36, said the issue had not been “vetted” with the mayor and the people of Springhill.
“It was not vetted with the locals, and the mayor and others asked me not to push the bill,” he said.
House Bill 151, if Reynolds had decided to move forward with it, would have tacked on an additional $4 to residents’ water bill for fire protection. Springhill residents pay $4 already for fire protection,
