After a week to think about it, Allen County commissioner decided to give LaHarpe $31,962 for additions to its rural volunteer fire department.
Commissioner Bill King said, I thought it was a reasonable request. They werent asking for the whole thing. They were putting up $31,962 themselves.
King added he didnt think they should take up LaHarpes offer to repay the money.
