Neighbors’, Elected Officials and Candidates Comments:
Chief Buck, The Woodlands Fire Department gave a report on the services provided and status of the department. The Woodlands Fire Department saw a decrease in the number of calls for the first time in 20 years and actually had to put out public service notices notifying citizens that they can call for service during the pandemic. Service calls have increased over the end of the year but now seeing sicker people due to delays before calling for service. The township will be implementing a new testing center in Creekside Park and are now looking at a mass vaccination site in the early spring.
