Chair Fornengo expressed his concern with the claim from the Duxbury Volunteer Fire Department for $4500.  He stated that a few years ago the rate was raised by $1000 so that a retirement fund could be set up for retiring volunteer firefighters and, thus far, no such fund has been established.  He sent information to the Fire Department regarding the procedure for setting up as a non-profit organization.
