Wow---get your facts straight!

First off......The reason this boat is going to Wrightsville Beach is because Wilmington has an obligation to provide fire protection to BOTH sides of the city. This includes all of the Wrightsville Beach area {due to annexation}. Second....This is an existing fireboat that the city owns...not a new boat. This is the older boat that was replaced by the boat that was recently purchased. Third.....if all you homeowners in this area enjoy keeping your property taxes will have NO issue with a boat going there. The Insurance Safety Office rates fire departments mainly upon the ability to provide fire protection in a timely manner {along with other factors} and grades them from 1 being the best to 10 being the worst. The City has a 2 rating and the MUST keep the criteria met to keep this rating and keep your insurance rates low.....which means adding fire protection to this area. Last....the City is incurring the expense {with grants} and has agreed to GIVE this newly constructed dock to Wrightsville beach free of charge after 15 years. This is not to issue citations, saftey checks, patrolls or whatever else crap you people come up with. It will not be manned. It will be there as a responding unit in case of a fire or rescue in which case you should be thankfull you have as many people coming to save you or your property as possible.
