This is false and misleading. Chief Black has stated that they are searching nation wide for firefighters but there is a nation wide shortage both for firefighters and volunteers. There are no guarantees they will find the firefighters or volunteers to bring staffing up to the minimum standards. If they do, the money left will not be enough to upgrade the current equipment. They have deferred equipment maintenance for years and their trucks are 10 years or older. EJFR has not been accountable with our tax dollars and I will only vote for a one year levy with accountability benchmarks. If they meet those bench marks or come close I would consider more one year levy's with more bench marks. Note: We just had a large property value increase, this is not the time for a permanent increase!
