Cape FD spending funds wisely
To the editor;
My congratulations to Rick Ennis, our Cape Girardeau Fire Department chief, on his efforts to show our residents exactly how our tax dollars are being spent.
Our fire department held an open house to display all the new equipment that has been purchased with our tax money. What a great way to show us that they are spending and investing our tax dollars wisely.
My appreciation to these guys for their efforts in controlling costs, spending wisely and keeping us safe.
DOUG AUSTIN, Cape Girardeau
