Eastside Fire & Rescue Chief Jeff Clark is seeking invitations to speak with local community service groups and homeowner associations about the proposed fire authority for King County Fire Districts 10 and 38. The agencies are asking voters to combine into one fire authority on the November ballot.
Fire District 10 serves May Valley, Tiger Mountain, Mirrormont, Preston and the City of Carnation. Fire District 38 covers the unincorporated areas around North Bend and Snoqualmie.
The fire districts are losing property and tax revenue to neighboring cities due to annexations. The fire agencies contend that working together will reduce costs, maintain emergency service levels and improve efficiencies for taxpayers long-term. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Clark at 313-3228 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation.
