The Mid-County Fire District is hoping a larger anticipated turnout for the August ballot will translate to better results than back in April. The district is asking for approval of a tax levy which, according to Fire Marshall Lianne Johnson, would replace some of the 25-cent bond issue that was paid off early saving the district over $300-thousand.
Currently at any given time, the Mid-County Fire District has three firefighters assigned to each 24 hour shift. Approval of the measure would allow the district to employ two more firefighters to each shift starting with the station house in Greenview. Voters will decide the fate of the tax levy request coming up on Tuesday, August 7th.
