PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. — Dr. Morgan Lowry said she was appalled and embarrassed when she learned how much the Midway Fire and Rescue personnel who answered a fire alarm at her home in North Litchfield are paid.
The damage to her home proved minor, but Lowry has become an advocate for higher pay for the men and women at Midway Fire and Rescue. She presented a petition with 100 signatures to members of county council this week, asking that taxes in the Midway tax district be raised by $30 per household and fire department personnel each be given a $5,000 raise.
