The Muscular Dystrophy Association asked city commissioners on Monday if they could fund raise on intersections, as part of the "Fill The Boot" campaign. As a result city manager Jason Gage is drafting a policy for the city to review by the end of the year.
It's something that local firefighters can get behind.
"We have a number of people in our community that suffer from muscular dystrophy," fire chief Larry Mullikin said.
However, it's not as simple as filling boots with cash. If the city allows MDA and the firefighters to fund raise it would have to allow other approved non-profits to do the same.
"Do we want our motorists, on any given weekend, to see folks out, trying to ask money at those intersections that they pass through every single weekend," Gage said.
They're are also concerns about safety, but MDA has given commissioners a set of guidelines. They include firefighters wearing vests and only approaching vehicles when they are stopped and drivers give an indication that they want to give money.
Other concerns include response times for on-duty firefighters and allowing all city workers to fund raise on the clock.
