Aurora RFPD sues for assets in Donald
The Aurora Rural Fire Protection District # 63 filed suit Sept. 17 in Marion County Circuit Court alleging that past members of the former Donald Firefighters Association transferred dozens of assets into a new group called the Donald Community Association at the end of last year.
The fire district and District 63 Firefighters Association make five claims against the DCA, including breach of contract, breach of financial duties and unjust enrichment. In total, the district is seeking $53,752 in property value, cash and attorneys fees.
At the heart of the squabble is a 1944 Ford fire truck, which the fire district valued at $25,000. The district alleges that DCA members retained ownership of the truck just prior to their associations dissolution in December 2012.
Donald Community Association members listed in the suit are: George (Frank) Stormo, Todd Deaton, Ocey Grant, Walter Pohlschneider, Kim Kirkwood, Jon Benson and Rick Zacher.
Stormo said he has not yet been served the suit and declined to comment on the advice of an attorney.
