HILLSVILLE — Existential debates don’t often break out at government meetings, but the question whether a disbanded rescue squad does or does not exist arose at the Aug. 13 Hillsville Town Council meeting.
The question, raised by Council Member David Young, is this: if Hillsville Volunteer Rescue Squad no longer exists, then why does it have officers and how can it still own equipment and supplies?
“We need to research if they are still a rescue squad,” Young said. “We need to find out where they’re meeting and who they are.”
