Fire District 2 (Fairfield) – Members of the Fairfield City Council joined the commissioners to discuss incorporating the town into the fire district. The town currently contracts with the district for fire service, but town residents can’t vote on levies or run for commissioner. A District 12 commissioner was also on hand to discuss how his district incorporated the towns of Waverly and Latah recently. Commissioners also decided to do away with the district’s EMS training position. (Source: Chief Jason Laulainen)
Fire District 8 – Three full-time firefighters were promoted to lieutenant. Commissioners approved a motion to declare an emergency to repair water damage to Station 81. During December’s cold snap water pipes burst in the ceiling, flooding a conference room and causing other damage. The district’s annual awards banquet is set for Feb. 13. A mutual aid agreement with District 11 was slightly modified to change boundaries. A short executive session was held to discuss personnel issues. (Source: Administrative assistant Carol Trescott)
