My opinion: I agree with how the board of trustees has handled this problem. If I was placed in a similar situations, I'd propose the same idea to business owners. It makes sense not only for the Fire Department to have these keys, but for the Police Department too. This will allow for people as individuals to be more protected; it will strengthen the Village of Hobart as a whole. This new policy for safety personnels being able to access public lock boxes may raise concerns for the community because of the accountability. However, in the end I believe this is a good way for people to stay safe even in skeptical moments.
