The Columbia City Council had a first reading in its Monday, June 5, 2017, regular session of an ordinance which will allow the Columbia Fire Department, at the discretion of the chief, to set the number of firefighters from as few as 20 to as many as 40.

Ordinance No. 310.11 was read by Senior Council Member Craig Dean, titled, "An ordinance amending the number of volunteer firemen.

The ordinance would take effect after a second reading, and necessary public notices have been printed.

The action follows a request of Columbia Fire Department Chief Mike Glasgow, who said the increase from the current 36 firefighter slots is due to growth of the city, in terms of both population and area.
