When Prop One was rejected in April, many reasons for the failure were mentioned. But a common thread was the $53.7 million dollar price tag.

 

And those voters I spoke with expressed a bit of surprise it was so high, saying they may have voted for a lower bond.

 

But none of the people said, since it was presented as everything was essential, remove this item or that expense.

 

So what will the voters think if the fire district presents a $39 million dollar bond (sounds better than $40, doesn’t it?) and cuts out several major suddenly-not-essential costs?

 

The reason I ask is that is exactly what was approved last night.

 

Kicking several essentials expenses down the road, spending millions to remodel an existing station for fleet maintenance now just to build a whole new one later. And removing the boat from public vote altogether.

 

 

Let me hear from you.
