A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY FOR SUPPORTING US
AND VOTING FOR 70 WEST FIRE DISTRICT!!!
The July Vote to become a fire district passed with a total of 62.76% voting FOR! We want to extend our sincerest appreciation to our community members who in the months and days preceding the July Election helped with gathering signatures on petitions, making phone calls, getting information out, working the polls, and turning out to cast your votes! A vote FOR meant placing the dues on Real Estate Property Taxes paving the way to increase the participation of dues paying members from 41% to over 90%. More participation will provide the needed funds to update equipment, improve training, equip more firefighters and first responders, and allow the department the funds needed to work toward the ever continuing goals of providing better protection for the community and lowering the Insurance Services Office (ISO) Ratings for the area resulting in money back in the pockets of the homeowners with lower insurance premiums.. We will be working over the next few months to make the transition from 70 West Fire Protection Association to the newly formed District. We will share updates and information as soon as it's available. We will be holding a public meeting on November 4, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. Every qualified elector of the district is invited to come and elect the new Board of Commissioners. The meeting and election will be held at Station 2 at 2900 Airport Road, Hot Springs, AR 71913. We are again very grateful to the community and will keep you updated as we go through the next few months.
