Fire district assessment

I can count on the fingers of one hand, with several left over, the number of times I have supported any “tax” increase. However, this is one of those times.

Consolidated is asking for an assessment of $89 per year per average home. The increase is less because the current assessment (mine is currently $59 per year) will be replaced.

The vast majority of Consolidated’s calls are for medical emergencies and accidents. The aging of our population here makes it imperative that we have the best services we can afford.
