The 12 volunteer fire and ambulance companies in Harford County, Md., have accepted the county executive's requirement that they bond officers who handle money. The executive's decision in September to tie millions in county funds to the signing of a memorandum of understanding drew controversy from some of the organizations, and some said their officers were already bonded. The executive's requirements also include provisions about disclosing financial information, although all of the companies submit yearly audited financial statements.
