The Poor Little Fire District

Special Meeting (again, $104 extra for each Commissioner) to discuss whether they need more money.  They got an enormous (and even unexpectedly large) increase in the tax levy a couple of years ago.  Because of that, they are socking away $15,000 every month for their rainy day funds.  And now they are thinking they need some more.  We should all have such reserves.  Oh, wait, we would have such reserves if we weren't paying the Fire District all our extra money.

If you'd like to see how the Fire District works in its policy mode (frankly, not a pretty sight), this might be a very good meeting to attend.  7 pm, Monday, November 12th, at the firehall.  See ya'  The agenda does not include "Public Comment.'  So presumably Mr. Meursing will be frequently telling us to shut up or threatening us with expulsion from His Meeting.
