Dublin OK financially speaking

During its Thursday night meeting, the Dublin Council heard reports from the various departments and prepares for the coming holidays.
On the budget, Town Manager Bill Parker indicated that the town is on solid ground; within its expected appropriations, adding that “we are where we’re supposed to be.”
The Dublin Fire Department reported that for the month of October, it responded to two ADT alarms, 13 motor vehicle crashes, one structure fire; two vehicular fires; two service calls and one response to smell of smoke. The report also enumerated the training and meetings held at various places to inform the public on how best to prevent accidental fires in homes, in vehicles; schools and office buildings.
As of October 2009, the water department reported a total of 1,137 in-town accounts and 1,623 out-of-town accounts. There were three water breaks and zero new service. The sewer department responded to three sewer blockages and the street department spent 50 hours mowing and 15 hours picking up leaves. The sanitation department reported having 166 business customers and 1,050 residential customers. The New River solid waste management moved 123.47 tons of waste to the regional landfill at the cost of $3,961.04.
Transfer of the deed of the building that was formerly owned by the now defunct life saving crew is still up in the air. “We still have not received any kind of resolution from Richmond,” said Town Lawyer Thomas Baker, Jr.
The building was previously deeded to the lifesaving crew 15 years ago by the town of Dublin, and since its demise the town expected the title to revert back to its original title holder.
