FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF:
This November 3rd, our citizens will be seeing a ballot issue from our fire district,
Proposition ‘S’. This is a NO TAX INCREASE Bond renewal. Revenue generated by the Proposition ‘S’ bond renewal will provide for the updating and replacement of existing life-saving equipment, as well as upkeep of our firehouse. Like all bond issues, NO monies can be used for pay, benefits, or retirement compensation. Prop S will NOT CAUSE YOUR PROPERTY TAXES TO INCREASE! Passage of Prop ‘S’ will simply enable the Fire District to maintain services at the same tax rates. Our citizens will soon be receiving mailers detailing the bond issue. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions.
