Fire Department Settles Raffle Complaint

The head of Manchester’s Eighth Utilities District Fire Department has signed an agreement to settle charges from the state Department of Consumer Protection, involving a discrepancy in money from a fundraiser.

After a fire department raffle, the amount of money deposited in the bank, was almost $4,000 less than the value of the tickets sold.

Under the newly-signed agreement, the department accepts a one-year probationary period.

The chief promises that the department will follow all regulations connected to its raffles and bazaars.

The department also agrees to pay restitution to the people who bought twenty-five missing raffle tickets.

The agreement was finalized when the Department of Consumer Protection’s commissioner signed on Tuesday, April 2.

The current fire chief, Ronald Russo, took over after the raffle was held on August 26, 2011.
