(CROTHERSVILLE) - The only Jackson County township fire department yet to make the conversion to a fire district is proposing that switch now to help bring in more money for operating costs amid an increase in emergency calls.

The Seymour Tribune reports in a meeting with Crothersville Town Council members Tuesday, Crothersville-Vernon Fire Chief Ben Spencer discussed the potential effects of the proposal on property owners and why the department needs more revenue.

The council is one of several government bodies that would have to approve the proposal before the district can be established.
