Speeding complaint prompts Huntsville to look at liability issue

The Huntsville Village Council is looking into what its liabilities are when it comes to the driving habits of its volunteer servants.

Mayor William Jenkins reported receiving a complaint about a volunteer firefighter’s use of excessive speed in “very foggy conditions,” adding that the complainant was nearly struck by the driver. Fire Chief Tim Jenkins was asked to speak with the volunteers about the matter.

Further, council members raised concerns about what the village’s liability is if such an accident occurs. Officials will contact the village’s insurance representative for clarification on the matter.
