Crocker firefighters, police, parks in good condition
CROCKER, Mo. (Jan. 12, 2009) — While most of Crocker’s Monday night council meeting focused on financial issues and possible staff reductions, other city officials also reported on issues involving their departments.

Crocker Police Chief Robert Ishmael, who also serves as a captain on the Crocker Rural Fire Protection District, reported that the fire district had 208 fire runs in 2008 and has received an Aid to Firefighters grant for $48,000 enabling the fire district to buy significant amounts of fire hose and lines to replace existing smaller hoses or damaged hoses. A power generator for the fire station will arrive soon, he said, enabling the fire station to remain operational if the city’s electricity shuts down due to an ice storm or other problems.

A new animal control program implemented by the police department that requires dog tags and allows the city to pick up problem animals has helped reduce resident complaints, Ishmael said.

“We have 20 dogs and two cats impounded, so our program is working,” Ishmael said.

City Administrator Joyce Peterson reported that a local businessman, Bob Goodrich, agreed to donate work done for the city park and was given a receipt for $1,840 corresponding to the value of his donation, she said.
