Supervisors in southern Butler County plan to close down the 30-year-old Winfield Township Volunteer Fire Department.
The Winfield Township Supervisors will take a vote on the matter in August. If the department is shut down, the township will enter into an agreement with the three neighboring fire departments– Herman, Saxonburg and Buffalo Township– to provide fire protection services.
No official word why this is happening, but this is believed to be due to lack of enrollment in the volunteer fire department.
Sad, because everyone at this department is a great group of guys.
