FALL CITY TOWN HALL MEETING!
Fire District 27 Merger Vote Pro/Con Committee Debate
Thursday, March 28th from 7:00-8:30pm at Chief Kanim Middle School
The Vote takes place on April 23rd, 2019
We at the Fall City Community Association (FCCA) are aware of the opportunity for Fall City residents to vote to support or oppose the merger of the Fall City Fire District 27 into Fire District 10. One of the primary missions of the FCCA is to "proactively communicate on local issues" with Fall City residents.
The FCCA is moderating a town-hall discussion on Thursday, March 28th from 7:00-8:30pm at Chief Kanim Middle School.
The format will include:
- An introduction by the FCCA
- 5 minute presentations by two persons representing the "pro" position and two persons representing the "con" position.
- The remaining time will be answering 8 questions asked by the event moderators. Each committee will be given 3 minutes to answer each of these questions.
- Each committee will then be given 5 minutes to conclude their argument.
There will be no live questions or comments from the audience. However, we would like to source the 8 questions for this event ahead of time. If you would like to have a question asked by the moderators during this debate, you may submit it here prior to 8pm on Monday, March 25nd. Submit Questions Here
You may view all the posed questions before they are selected here: Here
The 8 final questions will be selected by the pro/con committees before 8:00pm Tuesday, March 26th from the results of the question submissions.
The FCCA Board will not debate the issue here. If you have questions regarding the debate format or question submission form, please let us know.
Citing concerns regarding financial sustainability and service delivery, Fire District 27 commissioners are exploring possible futures for the Fall City Fire Department. The option selected to put on a ballot for community approval/disapproval could have significant impact on the fire staff, local businesses, and residents in Fire District 27, so it is important that community members become familiar with the ramifications of each option for themselves and the community and to seek answers from and make their preferences known to the commissioners early in the process.
