All my questions regarding the assessment for the Nevada County Consolidated Fire District were answered in The Union’s follow-up article on Friday, Sept. 10.

We who own property in Nevada County should be the only voters to decide that our local fire stations must stay open by voting yes. Without a fire station, what happens to our home insurance coverage and premiums? A no vote means closed fire stations.

We who own property in Nevada County should realize that the annual charges of the fire assessment are a bargain when compared to the value of our homes.

We who own property in Nevada County should realize the importance of identifying ourselves as property owners so only our vote determines the outcome of this important fire assessment to our property.

Will I see you on Friday, Oct. 22 at 9 a.m. when our ballots are counted by independent consultants (to lay to rest any accusations of impropriety)? Place is Fire Station 84 at the intersection of Highway 49 and Coyote Street in Nevada City.

This is America – use your right to vote now. Ballots must be received by Oct. 21, 2004. Mine is in the mail today.
