Florence Webb here, sharing a fact:
We just got written confirmation from the George M. Stevens company (our insurance company) that if the Landaff Fire Department is eliminated, our homeowners insurance will almost triple because we are over five miles from the Lisbon Fire Station. Our price will rise by thousands (okay, we have a big house). If you are five miles by road from Lisbon Town Hall, you may want to ask your insurance company what the effect would be for you. FYI.
