Week in review


Fire District 8 – A public hearing was held on revenue sources for 2010. The 2010 budget was reviewed and commissioners approved a substantial need resolution that will allow an increase of 1 percent on existing property for the district’s regular levy and EMS levy. Four applicants have expressed interest in the vacant commissioner seat, and interviews will be conducted in November. A short executive session was held to discuss contract and personnel issues.

Fire District 11 (Rockford) – Commissioners discussed equipment maintenance issues. They also discussed the district’s largest fire this season, a recent five-acre timber fire east of Rockford on Jackson Road. The fire occurred on an extremely windy day, and units from Fire District 8 and the Department of Natural Resources helped knock it down. Commissioners also purchased a storage shed.
