    That would pre-suppose an equitable solution..... This is "Guv'ment" we're talking about, afterall.

    If that is the case, it's County owned, then sucks to be them.

    Gotta figure out another way to raise money. It sucks but they got no choice.

    Yeah I heard about this and even though I do not run with that particular group of volunteers to me it seems as if Prince George's County is screwing the volunteers there. Course they've been screwing with us for years, pulling all kind of BS.

    Then again, if the County doesn't own it, tell them to **** off.

    Fire Station: County Acting Like Scrooge
    Officials To Take Fire Department's Banquet Hall

    POSTED: 6:32 pm EST December 22, 2006
    UPDATED: 7:28 pm EST December 22, 2006

    PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. -- Prince George's County officials have put the Landover Hills volunteer fire station on notice -- pack your bags and be out by the New Year.

    Officials said that on Jan. 1, the county will be taking over the fire department's banquet hall to make way for a gym.

    Firefighters said they are concerned that the county is taking away its chief source of fundraising for the station.

    The station raises about $10,000 a year by holding fundraisers and renting out the hall, firefighters said. The money is used to buy equipment and other necessary items for the operation of the volunteer fire station.

    Among those who use the center are two churches; Verizon, for phone book distribution; Ladies' Auxiliary; and the Boys and Girls Club.
