For your review is the proposed budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. This budget will be voted on next Tuesday, April 25, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the South Fire District.
This budget was set by the Fire Commission after our annual series of budget workshops. The fire commissioners made an effort to ensure that the budget was carefully and cautiously composed. This budget is as lean as possible while ensuring the normal contractual growth was not overlooked. We believe the budget as it stands meets the funding levels to ensure we can continue to provide critical core fire, rescue, EMS, Haz-mat, code enforcement and fire prevention services to the residents of the district.
We, like the city officials, took into our consideration the volatility and unpredictability of the state revenues. We used a great deal of caution ensuring a safe and less reckless approach to the application of state revenue streams to the budget. We have made every possible effort to look for ways to cut cost, buy efficiently, track spending trends and eliminate any expense possible.
We hope that you will come and participate in the vote next Tuesday. If you have any questions on the budget or the fire district please do not hesitate to contact me.
