SHALLOTTE—The federal government has awarded the Shallotte Fire Department $406,420 to hire four new firefighters, but town aldermen want to wait a week to decide whether to approve it.
The new firefighters would provide enough staffing to meet federal recommendations for safety.
The five-year grant requires the town to provide matching funds at a greater rate each year, and at Tuesday night’s pre-agenda meeting, aldermen said they wanted a week to have all their questions answered before approving it.
The grant will be on the Sept. 2 meeting agenda.
