Reader wonders about cost of fire district’s ads

To the editor:

I recall a few years ago that Mehlville Fire Protection District Board of Directors Chairman Aaron Hilmer launched a transparency portal on the fire district’s website with great fanfare.

This section of the website lists all the expenditures of the district in detail.

I glanced at it just now and saw that there have been no entries made since December 2015. I was wondering in particular what the district was spending on the three full-page ads for the fire district that have appeared in the Call.

I guess we’ll never know.
