SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - The Spearfish City Council has officially created a city fire department.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports (https://bit.ly/1PQkLcH ) that the ordinance approved by the council this week was based on the recommendation of a task force formed to discuss the future of fire protection in Spearfish.

The task force recommended a city department with three full-time paid positions and a volunteer staff.

The Spearfish Volunteer Fire Department had voted last fall to dissolve by late January, citing a lack of support and low morale. It reversed the decision after the task force made its recommendation.
