County Commission puts Hatred of city over Public Safety; City calls County's bluff

The White Pine County Commission hates the City of Ely.  For two years they have called for the disincorporation of the City.  Now, after taking six months of an interim Interlocal Agreement for Fire protection designed to come up with a permanent agreement and letting it expire, the City told it's Fire Department not to respond as a first responder outside the city limits of Ely.  The lack of action by the County have, in effect, put the City in a no-win situation, and at the same time put the people who live south of Ely in jeopardy.
