FREDERICKTOWN — A member of the Fredericktown Community Fire District board said he will try for a vote on paid firefighters for the volunteer department at its next meeting.

Gary Alverson, speaking at the Monday meeting of Fredericktown Village Council, said he is prepared to introduce a resolution for paid daytime staff at FCFD at the fire board’s March 14 meeting.

The fire board voted on the issue at its January meeting. The vote was split three to three, effectively killing the motion that had been put before the board.
