A disagreement between the Ropes Volunteer Fire Department and the City of Ropesville has apparently been settled.
A judgment that was recently approved by a visiting judge, Les Hatch, has been agreed to by all parties in the case.
The plaintiffs were the fire department while the City of Ropesville and Hockley County were the defendants.
The judgment states that the defendants have no ownership interest in a 2000 Freightliner ambulance, 1980 Mack fire truck, a 1990 Mack fire truck and a Ford F-550.
It further states that the defendants have no ownership interest in fire rescue equipment that includes Jaws of Life, bunker gear and airpacks.
In the judgment, the defendants stated that they denied the allegations made by the plaintiff and entered the agreement for the ‘purpose to buy peace and end this litigation.’
