Meeting at 6 p.m. this evening, Oct. 24

Letter to the Editor

Palmdale Country Store was destroyed by fire. The community of Palmdale would like to have it rebuilt. There are no fire stations 20 miles each way, north or south on U.S. 27. There will be a meeting this evening, Oct.24, at 6 p.m. with the County Commissioners to talk about getting a fire department in Palmdale. It took the fire truck 45 minutes to get to Palmdale to put the fire out and then they ran out water, and the water tank in Palmdale was closed by the Glades County Commissioners. The community of Palmdale needs your help to get something done to get a fire truck.

Thanks a lot.

Marcia Taylor
