The Newman Lake Fire and Rescue (NLFR) Board of Commissioners is planning to put a bond on the ballot in April 2014 in order to replace our aging fire station. A $2.25 million bond in 2011 to build a new fire station did not receive the required super-majority approval and therefore failed. The current bond proposal is significantly different and reduces the bond to approximately $1.1 million. The cost to taxpayers would be approximately $31 per year per $100,000 assessed value. The term of the bond would be 20 years.
As always, we appreciate the support the Newman Lake residents give to their fire department. We want to be able to continue and improve the level of service we provide for you.
