Fire agency supports county road levy

    Since the reduction of revenue from state and federal fuel taxes for our countywide road system, with no other viable option to adequately fund the upkeep of our roads, the Wood River Fire Protection District formally endorses the proposed Road, Street and Bridge Levy on the May 20 ballot.
    The sustainability of funding and continued improvement of present capacity is a critical component for adequate and improved delivery of emergency services, both fire and ambulance. As elected to provide the best possible delivery to rate payers and users of our services in the valley, we want to ensure that our roads come into compliance with state and local standards, reduce response times for first responders and equipment to emergency incidents and as well, protect the useful longevity of our equipment down the road. Local agencies can better address safety problems on roads that are well maintained.
    Volunteers, full-time responders and the administrators of Wood River Fire and Rescue urge voters in the election to pass this ballot measure.
