Egg Harbor firefighters to reorganize

The Egg Harbor Fire Department will have to reorganize as a non-profit organization if it wants to continue fundraising to help pay for their operations.

 

Attorney Randy Nesbitt notified Egg Harbor Fire Chief Andy Staats on Monday that the Egg Harbor Firefighters, Inc. had its corporation administratively dissolved by the State of Wisconsin back on May 29th, 2017. Under state law and its by-laws, the Egg Harbor Firefighters, Inc. had to wind up its affairs and transfer its remaining funds to the Town of Egg Harbor. Those funds can still be used for fire department operations. That action took place on January 12th. In his letter to Staats, Nesbitt recommended the department establish a new non-stock, non-profit corporation so they could continue their fundraising efforts to help pay for their operations. Voting members would consist of only active firefighters and EMS personnel with the Egg Harbor Fire Department with the funds maintained by the Town of Egg Harbor. 

 

In a press release, Staats thanked everyone who has supported the department through the Egg Harbor Firefighter’s Association over the past years. He also said the officers of the fire department have agreed to pursue the necessary steps with the state to become a non-profit organization. You can read the letter from Nestbitt and Staats’ statement below.
