Putting your money to work as promised…the Sunrise Beach Fire District goes on record reporting to the general public how funding is being used from the recent voter-approved Proposition Fire.
Chief Joe Laplant says revenue from the ballot issue has allowed the district’s board of directors to elevate all staff members from the lowest non-contributory level of the Lagers retirement benefits to the highest level.
Other promises also included plans to open and staff Station-4, which is close to becoming a reality and could happen by January 1st of next year.
The board also, this week, approved the purchase of new self-contained breathing apparatus to replace aging out equipment.
It also allowed for the purchase of a brush truck, which will double as response vehicles for minor medical and citizen assist calls instead of rolling the big rigs, which are a lot more costly to operate.
