Published 7:00 am Thursday, February 1, 2024

On Jan. 24, County Commissioners presented a check for $66,816 to the Butler County Association of Volunteer Fire Departments. District 2 Commissioner Jesse McWilliams said supporting the association is a cause that the entire commission is passionate about. 

“For 24 years, every commission keeps the funding going,” McWilliams said. “They bring a real service to our counties. We can’t pay them what they’re worth but it’s our way of doing something.”
