    OOOOH, who bombed Pearl Harbor?
    I think Alabama was being bombed last night. The town of Cuba was hit pretty hard. Hope my friend Cuba Chief and his family is ok this morning. We must be living right here in our county because everything just went over and around us.
    Thank you God.

    I, and a lot of other interested parties, would like to know more about why and how your town's operations have been this successful.

    I know it's not an actual barometer of your community's financial status, since it is one issue. But with record numbers of towns and cities elected leadership sweating out their operational budgets, it does spark some interest about your area. Interesting yes.
    no doubt, would love to hear more. my fd scrapes by on the average $700 per month of tobacco tax that we get from our county. thats the only income we get from county. usually we receive about $1200 once a year from the state of alabama, but thats it. i couldnt imagine a yearly budget of $90k, much less 165K

    However, in good news, our property tax referendum passed on April 5th. 72%-yes votes

    An 80% increase in our fire tax rate will move our budget from $90,000 a year to approximately $165,000.
    Wow!

    Well, no there isn't; the only true confirmation anyone will get is the rejection notice when the eventually drop. The statement i made is based upon the circumstances you are seeing right now;

    1.) The program is almost out of the money it had for 2010 in the awards already given
    2.) There have been no more significant updating of anyone's applications for several weeks now
    3.) Some of the client's who had 2010 AFG award #s posted to thier old 1199as, have had them removed now
    4.) Information related to some of us who were in attendance at AFGs seminars presented at FDIC in Indy a couple of weeks ago indicates exactly what we are now seeing

    Couple all of those things together and your picture becomes pretty defined that if you have not had some sort of positive action expressed to you at this point from AFG, then its not looking real good for an award this year.

    Sounds like you're in an unfortunate situation. They were checking your square footage during the tech review process which means it scored well and should have been funded. Had 2 clients have those same questions and awarded this year.

    If there was something else they caught, you might have been cut for another reason.

    The grant was for sprinklers/fire alarm system in our main station. The questions were regarding sq footage of the stations living space.

    On the bright side they should be near the top of the pecking order for any supplemental funds that are awarded.
