Fire District on Election Ballot
One of the upcoming ballot election issues is to establish a Chillicothe Fire Protection District #1. Ed Daugherty who is president of the current organization says if passed, this would replace what is currently in place.
There will be three issues to vote on, the establishment of the district, electing a five members board, and a 30-cents per $100 assessed valuation for members inside the district boundary.
He said if you are not a member of the current organization and you have a fire, the city will send you a bill. Daugherty said if the measures pass, that practice would stop.
The 30-cents would also allow the new district to apply for grants for equipment upgrades.
