THIS WOULD BE A $.47 CENT INCREASE FROM OUR 2013 RATE. REVENUE PROJECTIONS SHOW THE DISTRICT WOULD SEE A $163,944 A YEAR REVENUE INCREASE.

30 WHAT IS YOUR COST?

31 HOME VALUE AND YOUR COST $200,000$94.00$7.83 $250,000$117.50$9.79 $300,000$141.00$11.75 $350,000$164.50$13.71 $400,000$188.00$15.66 TAXED VALUE OF HOMEYEARLY COSTMONTHLY COST

32 $10 TO $12 DOLLARS A MONTH BUYS YOU:

33 A NEW FIRE ENGINE

34 A NEW FIRE TENDER

35 NEW SCBAS

36 OUR FIRE INSURANCE RATING IS PROTECTED WITH THE PURCHASE OF NEW TRUCKS & SCBAs.

37 REPAIR OR REPLACE LOWER PARKING LOT ROOFS ON STATION 1 & 2 TRUCKBAY FLOOR & PAD REPLENISH RESERVE ACCOUNT WITH $15,000 ANNUALLY.

38 CROSSROADS THESE ARE CHALLENGES THAT WE DID NOT CREATE, BUT ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SOLVING. UNFORTUNATELY WE CURRENTLY CANNOT FUND THESE PROJECTS WITHOUT DRASTICALLY REDUCING EMERGENCY SERVICES.

39 SUMMARY OUR CHALLENGES ARE ONES CREATED BY AGE AND REVENUE SHORTFALLS. THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS AND MEMBERSHIP ENDORSE THE PLAN PRESENTED TO YOU TODAY AS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE AND PRACTICAL SOLUTION TO OUR DISCUSSED CHALLENGES. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
