City meeting returns to familiar turf -- finances and needs

The Eunice mayor and aldermen returned to familiar turf during Tuesday’s meeting as they heard a report from Fire Chief Mike Arnold outlining the fire department’s needs.
“It is time that we bring to the attention of the governing board of the city of Eunice certain deficiencies at your fire department,” Arnold said.
The first deficiency Arnold cited is a $9 an hour starting pay for firefighters, but most of his list was about aging equipment.
