Passage of Prop A will allow the fire district to purchase an ambulance every 2 years as needed to address the 18% call increase in the District over the past 5 years. These ambulances equipped cost the District approximately $250,000. The 2 ambulances currently serving our residents put 50,000 miles a year on them, each.

 

Passage of Prop A will allow for replacement of Engine House 2 that is over 50 years old and cannot accommodate some current equipment safely that the District Currently has. The replacement cost of this Fire Station will be between 2.5 and 3 million dollars.

 

Passage of Prop A will allow the Fire District to put new tax revenue away to replace the current ladder truck at station 1 at an estimated cost of over 1 million dollars.

 

Passage of Prop A will allow the District to supplement the Firefighters Pension Plan as it is substantially underfunded.

 

The assessed valuation has trended downward over the past several years and while incomes have fallen, the cost of running the District has risen dramatically.
