Bears trying to avoid fire at the fire department

The Big Bear Fire Department board meeting ended without a budget after contentious exchanges, failed votes, and two hours and 45 minutes of discussion. The organization will now be operating off of last year’s budget, which means no new spending on fixed assets and no new raises for any staff. Budget approval requires a supermajority of the board, which means seven “yes” votes. Ultimately, two votes were called to approve the proposed budget, but both failed. The directors who voted “no” have all shared their belief that the financial practices of the agency’s budget year after year are moving to an unsustainable future.
