There are major developments tonight that could determine the fate of the Central Coventry Fire Department.
The Department Board of Directors meets at 7 p.m. and must vote on whether or not to accept concessions from the firefighters union.
The union has agreed to eliminate five firefighter positions give up pay raises and accept a higher–cost medical plan.
All told the firefighters have agreed to $1.1 million dollars in cuts.
If the fire board rejects the concessions it is under court order to vote tonight, on whether the fire department should be closed down.
