Clinton’s new fire station has a number of deficiencies that apparently have been there since it was opened 15 months ago.

City Manager Mark Skiles, who came here six months after the opening, confirmed the problems Monday and said steps are being taken to get them corrected.

Bullets have flown in or around Clinton twice this week, with three parties involved in an exchange of gunfire downtown late Monday afternoon and two Farmrail workers hearing bullets whizzing around them shortly before noon Thursday at the west edge of town.

Clinton police soon will be outfitted with body cameras when they’re on duty.

Capt. Justin Parker, head of the Police Department’s Patrol Division, said 14 of the $750 cameras have been acquired and delivered, but it took some doing.
