Bost recalls asking Makanda Township Fire Chief Al Yancey.
"He said, 'Yeah,' Bost related.
"'Maybe you should give Paul Simon a call.'"
Yancey is the only full-time firefighter for Makanda Township, which stretches from south of Carbondale to Union County.
Bost, of Murphysboro, sponsored legislation that would allow Makanda and Carbondale townships to ask voters to increase property taxes for their fire departments.The House and Senate passed it during the spring session, but the Senate changed it slightly.That sent the measure back to the House.
Yancey convinced Simon, a Democrat and former U. S. senator, that Bost's proposal made sense.
...
Yancey said he didn't know how large a tax increase the township government would ask for.
He noted that Unity Point School and Giant City School are both inside the township and their combined enrollment is 1,200 students.Yancey explained that special devices to shore up the buildings in case of disaster are under consideration.New tax money also could pay for training to use the equipment.The department also wants to replace a 20-year-old fire engine, and buy equipment to allow rescues in the rocky canyons of Giant City State Park.
