Plans to merge Lompoc's fire services halted

Plans to merge Lompoc's fire services with Santa Barbara County's hit a dead end Tuesday night.

The city council voted four to zero to halt the merger.

The council says the estimated price tag was just too high at almost $6 million.

That is almost twice what the city currently pays for its fire services each year.

The city's public safety commission directed staff to review the city's options.

A recent report says the city's fire department is understaffed and underfunded.
