PHILLIPS — The city of Phillips Common Council was unanimous in its decision to deny a request from the town of Harmony to join the Phillips Fire District at the May 16 regular meeting.

Phillips Mayor Charles Peterson said the Fire Ad Hoc Committee met for over a year on the matter and recommended that the Common Council not approve the Harmony request. The rationale was that by adding Harmony the Catawba-Harmony Fire District would dissolve and potentially increase the burden for other departments to respond to those areas of Price County.
