Volunteer firefighters sue city over control of finances

The Lexington Fire Department has taken the City of Lexington to federal court over the disposition of a bequest. As the Roanoke Times reports, the suit brings to light a dispute over who controls the firefighters’ budget. Volunteer firefighters apparently have chafed over funding decisions made by the city. In the suit, the firefighters say the city wrongly appropriated money left to the fire department in a will.
