VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - This city’s oldest fire station may not close after all.

On Friday, Mayor George Flaggs Jr. said he’s asking the board of mayor and aldermen to repeal a resolution to close Station No. 7. The resolution was passed in September.

The Vicksburg Post reports (https://bit.ly/1sbcQgY ) that the resolution called for closing the station if the Vicksburg Fire Department failed to reduce overtime.

The city had planned to close the station in February, but fire department overtime began falling from its 2015 levels during the first quarter of fiscal 2016.
