The Shelley-Firth fire district is asking voters to approve a $1.7 million bond. In Shelley, the bond will pay for property and a new fire house. In Firth, the fire station will be renovated and two brush trucks purchased.
The bond request voted on last May was defeated by eight votes. The amount of the bond--$1.7 million--is the same as requested in May, however, fire district official hopes voters will approve it this time. The amount requested is not an addition to the bond that was defeated in May.
To pass this bond, a super majority of votersâ€”67 percentâ€”must approve.
