‘Yes’ on assessment

As a resident of the Banner Mountain/Cascade Shores area and a full-time paramedic, I would like to ask my neighbors to join me and vote “yes” on the special benefit assessment being mailed to you.

At this time, our closest staffed fire stations are at Providence Mine Road and Coyote streets in Nevada City. Nevada County Consolidated Fire District is working hard to reduce response times to fires and medical emergencies in our area. One of the main goals, if this assessment passes, is to staff a fire station 24/7 in the Banner Mountain area. This is of great benefit to the resident of Cascade Shores, Idaho-Maryland Road, Red Dog Road areas, easily reducing response time by 50 percent.

The district is asking you to increase your fire assessment by $30 per year for a single family residence. Every minute counts when you, your family member or neighbor is in a crisis. For the price of one month’s TV cable bill, you can make a big difference for your community.
