The taxpayers of Central Coventry will not file an injunction preventing the town council from loaning the Central Coventry Fire District money to keep it's doors open for the next three weeks.

Nicholas Gorham the lawyer for "the taxpayers" says the taxpayers don't think they can change the Judge's mind by filing an appeal. "I know when the writing is on the wall," said Gorham.

Not to mention, "by the time we would get this thing through the Supreme Court the money would be gone," said Gorham.

Gorham said despite the decision to not fight the loan money, "the fight is not over."

"This is not over, it is a 3 week solution, it's a lot of money but it will only last three weeks then they will be back."

The town council will now loan the Central Coventry Fire District approximately $100,000 for the next three weeks to keep it's doors open.

Sources tell ABC6 that the Governor is likely to step in during the next couple of weeks and try to resolve the issue.
