Volunteer firemen not only put out house fires, they also tend to auto accidents throughout the parish.

There are 14 volunteer fire departments in Vermilion Parish. Because of the decline of volunteer firemen in certain parts of the parish, volunteer fire stations may close in the future. During budget meetings by the police jury last week, the police jury was looking at ways to trim finances.

The showing of the “Polar Express” set for tonight in Magdalen Square in downtown Abbeville has been postponed until next Friday, Dec. 16. Organizers moved the event due to expected low temperatures. The gate will open next Friday at 6 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7 p.m. The event is free to the public.

The good news for police jury employees is that no one is getting laid off or getting their pay cut anytime soon. The bad news is that your health insurance premiums will be going up in January. The police jury met for two hours on Wednesday to try to find ways to cut of the $1.3 million shortfall projected in 2017.
