From the Chief:

August 10, 2016

 

Dear Community Member,

 

I wanted to communicate with the Maple Valley community about the recent election. Our request to approve a benefit charge to improve emergency services lost, but we wanted to thank everyone who voted.  It’s an important civic duty, and we appreciate you taking part in the discussion.

The next step is for the Board of Fire Commissioners for Maple Valley Fire & Life Safety to meet and discuss funding options for emergency services. Our current excess levy expires at the end of the year.  In 2017, voters will be asked to consider restoring funding for emergency services as our collection rate will drop below $1.30/$1000 of assessed value. We cannot sustain emergency service levels at this rate.  The department will provide all necessary information so you can give careful consideration before voting.

My door is always open, so please feel free to contact me with any questions. We appreciate the opportunity to serve our community.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brad W. Doerflinger
