"Some little Easter baskets for my adult children. Anything that comes out of Callie's they'll like," said Loretta Wassel of Barrett Township.

Hi Everyone,

I've updated some of the information in our Downloads section related to the Barrett Township Volunteer Fire Department.

Clarifications regarding the asset inventory posted previously:

  • The Barrett Township Volunteer Fire Department is a legally separate entity from Barrett Township itself. (It was originally formed in the 1940's as the Buck Hill Fire Department, which later moved to Barrett Township.)
  • Barrett Township Supervisors pay the liability insurance bill for the Fire Department
  • The 1932 Ford Firetruck, the Trailers, and the Fire Department building are owned by the Fire Department itself, NOT Barrett Township Supervisors

Respectfully submitted,
Nate Covington
