Questions remain

A public hearing regarding the fire assessment will be held on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. Our ballots have to be in by 5 p.m. on Oct. 21, so we have to have some answers before then. First, why a forever assessment with a built-in COLA of up to 3 percent each year? There are two or three firehouses that are supposed to be sold; where is this money going? We called our insurance carrier and were told there would be no automatic increase if this assessment did not pass. We are not opposed to an increase in the fire assessment, but we believe this is a bit much.
