MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A volunteer fire department in Marshall County rejected a plan to give an outside citizens group a greater role in running the department.

They say management should remain with the board.

Last month voters in Swearengin rejected a plan to pay a 60-dollar a year fire protection fee.

That prompted several high ranking fire department members to resign and now two area volunteer fire departments have said they will no longer provide aid to the community.
