Clallam County Fire District 2: Reduced Services, Higher Fees

With an unusually hot dry summer, Clallam County Fire District 2 commissioners have approved reductions in service and higher fees if a proposed levy lid lift doesn't get approved by voters this November.  Voters will be asked to raise the lid 29 cents per one-thousand dollars of assessed valuation.

If the request is not approved, service reductions could include:  no longer responding to burn complaints or smoke investigations (outside structures), and no longer responding outside the fire district.

Interesting what "priorities" are. We spent a billion a month for a decade or more in Iraq, and a similar amount in Afghanistan. And what do we have to show for it?

The Government spent $85 billion a month for the last 5 or 6 years, bailing out the stock market from the financial collapse cause by the Wall Street whiz kids' games.

Etc, etc, etc.

But the taxpayers themselves get threatened with service cuts for every day local services, because there is not enough tax money available to keep the levels at minimum levels.

Sure. Why not? Nobody seems to care, anyways.

They want some new toys and better wages and will ramrod them into you in order to get them.

Back in the good old days we went and kicked down fires on our own and didn't think of fancy equipment and getting paid, we just wanted to get the fucking fires out.
