You are all urged to attend the hearing at the a Barnstable Superior Court at 2pm tomorrow (Thursday, February 27) when John Julius requests a preliminary injunction to stop the March 5th vote on the proposed new Hyannis Fire Station.  Julius needs your support.  He and other opponents argue that not only is the proposed fire station too expensive, raising taxes on the average home owner well over 10% over a 30 year period, but the plan for the town-wide approval vote on March 5 is not sufficient to get fair and complete input from the citizens of Hyannis.  Your  presence in court tomorrow will drive home to the judge the importance of this injunction to the citizens of Hyannis.
