Watson, Minn., council votes on fire dept. contract with Montevideo


WATSON -- Watson City Council members voted 3-2 Tuesday evening to contract with the city of Montevideo for fire protection.

With a packed house watching, many of them members of the Watson Community Fire Department, the tie-breaking vote fell to council member Tina Buseman.

Her vote came after council members rejected an offer by the attorney for the Watson Community Fire Department to negotiate a contract yet that evening.
