The Postville City Council held a special meeting last night with the Fire Department and Rural Fire Board.  The Postville City Attorney explained how the 501(c)(3) can only be used for the public purpose of fundraising. It was also explained about options the Fire Department has.  The Department can continue to operate through the city but must follow the city codes and ordinances.  The Fire Department could break away from city control and become their own entity.  They then would have to enter into a 28E agreement with the city, which owns the equipment and building.  The Fire Department will study the options and report back to the Council in August.
