JTVFD offers apologies to all

Sunday, August 24, 2008

To the Editor:

I would like to offer my apologies to the firefighters and residents of Posey, Perry, Cass, Sugar Ridge and Van Buren Townships.

Many people from those areas have contacted me today in regard to a mailing from Midwest portraits, a company we have partnered with to do a fundraiser.

These mailings were intended solely for the residents of Jackson Township.

I cannot explain why the company has sent them almost county-wide.

It is neither the policy nor intention of the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department to try and raise money in other department's response areas.

I have contacted the company and there should be no more sent out.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached through the Clay County Justice Center or tnichols@jtyfd.com.

Troy Nichols, Fire Chief,

Jackson Township

Fire and Rescue
