Voters Pass Proposition Safety
On April 7, 2015 the voters of the Cedar Hill Fire Protection District approved “Proposition Safety” a 50 cent per $100 of assessed valuation tax increase to fund the operations of the district. The approval of the tax levy increase will permit the district to add staffing to provide 24 hour coverage at Stations 2 and 3, replace aging equipment and provide revenue to maintain the district’s current operating budget as funds are available.
On behalf of the Board of Directors I want to express a sincere “Thank You” to the voters of the district for the positive outcome of the election. Also, as in the past, the district will be very frugal with the additional funding and will accomplish what it said that it would do with the funds. We will keep everyone informed as changes and purchases occur in your fire district.
Many thanks also goes out to Citizens for Cedar Hill Fire and everyone else that helped to achieve this much needed goal. Without everyone’s hard work the results probably would not have been positive.
Again, many thanks to everyone for a job well done! Please take time to do a short survey for us. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GW3RGFT
