Town proposes free decals for fire, police

Career (paid) firefighters and police officers living within the Town of Pulaski will soon be able to receive one town decal free for use on their personal vehicle.
Pulaski Town Council voted 5-0-1 Tuesday night to authorize town staff to prepare such an ordinance for approval at a later meeting.
Councilman H.M. Kidd, an employee of Regional Emergency Medical Services Inc. (REMSI), abstained from voting on the matter.
Under state code, localities can offer a single free decal to “certain classifications of individuals” including career firefighters, police officers and deputy sheriffs, Police Chief Gary Roche said.
He and Fire Chief Bill Webb proposed council apply the law to the town’s paid firefighters and police officers to afford “equal treatment within the their ranks” and provide additional incentive for them to live in the town.
They also proposed that deputy sheriffs living in the town limits also receive a free decal for their personal vehicle if the county agrees to do the same for town personnel residing in the county.

Mayor Jeff Worrell said he thought the town already was offering the free decal. However, he said he has since learned that it has only been applied to the town’s volunteer firefighters.
