Cottonwood Shores officials in final contract negotiations with VFD

by Emily Hilley-Sierzchula

After almost six months of negotiations, the Cottonwood Shores Volunteer Fire Department (CSVFD) chief and the Cottonwood Shores mayor are attempting to iron out contractual differences.

The current fire department/city contract will expire Sept. 30, leaving little time left for fine-tuning on the agreement.

The Cottonwood Shores City Council is expected to address the issue at a regularly scheduled meeting Thursday, Sept. 18, while the CSVFD board of directors will discuss it tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 16, at a special meeting.

“We’re in a state of flux as far as the contract goes,” Mayor Donald Orr said Monday, Sept. 15.

Back during the council’s Aug. 21 meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Stephen Sherry had presented the contract to citizens and Judy Pace, president of the CSVFD board of directors, as a final product awaiting signatures from the department.
