D. CITIZEN COMMENTS
Bob Donovan - Franklin Fire Dept - speaking in oppose the motion to removing the Fire Fighters from Civil Service; surprised by the agenda item, under negotiation for current contract; police have language but it may not fit the fire fighters situation. Haven't had the change to talk about it. Civil service is a huge item.
The impact of the passage would have to be negotiated. There are a lot of others things going on with the contract, civil service is not a topic there. There are a lot of liabilities to go along with the civil Service process. Let's work it out before you take it away.
On behalf of the membership, the fire fighters are against removing civil services
