District Seeks to Improve its Services

At the Board of Directors Meeting on November 10, 2014, the Board voted in favor of placing a $.50 tax levy measure before the voters of the district on April 7, 2015 to provide additional full time personnel to staff Stations 2 and 3 on a full time basis, replace aging equipment, and to provide funds for decreasing revenue because of the lack of growth in the district.

 The district’s status was presented at a public meeting at Northwest High School on September 30th and citizens had an opportunity to fill out a questionnaire regarding key issues facing the district.  On October 21st a meeting was held with the people that filled out the questionnaire to see what direction the Board should pursue and the recommendation was to present the $.50 tax levy to the voters. 

No one wants to see tax increases but it costs a lot of money to run a fire district that covers 82 square miles and operates 3 stations, 17 full time employees, 1 part time employee and 25 volunteer firefighters.  This is being done with tax revenue currently at $1,325,173.  Tax revenues have not increased to keep up with general operating expenses.  The 2015 budget is projected to have an increase of about $4,000 which does not cover the increase in expenses and does not allow for setting money aside to replace aging equipment.

Our volunteers are helping out when they can but their time is limited as to what they can devote to the district.  Adding the full time personnel will provide 24 hour coverage with 2 people in each station.  This is not what is recommended by national standards but it will at least get people responding right away to cut down on the response time and also have more people to handle emergencies until our volunteers can get there to help out. The full 24 hour coverage and equipment replacement will have to be phased in as the anticipated tax increase will provide about $800,000 per year. 

A citizen’s committee has been formed to promote this issue as the Fire District can only provide factual information.  For additional information that this committee can provide you can go to www.facebook.com/citizensforcedarhillfire


 

Road Work on Hwy B Traffic Alert

Road work

Road crews will be replacing four culverts on Route B between Route EE and Route 30 in Jefferson County starting next week.  The work is part of the ongoing Route B Safety Improvement Project.  The culvert replacement will require crews to close the road to thru traffic between Route EE and Route 30 daily from 8:30 am to 3:30pm starting on Monday, November 3rd.  The work should take about a week to complete.  Local traffic only will be allowed through the closure points but not past the location of the culvert that is being replaced.  The first culvert that will be replaced is located between Cedar Hill Road and Leo Lane. 

 

The Fire District will attempt to keep citizens updated on this project along with daily MODOT information on our Facebook and Twitter pages.  Please drive slow through work zones to allow the constructions crews to do their job safely.
