Springfield Fire Chief Calls on Area Fire Districts To Pay Their Share


Springfield’s fire chief is calling on a number of small outlying communities to do more to cover the cost of the fire protection services they receive.

 

The city is currently renegotiating its contracts with nine small fire protection districts who rely on the city for all firefighting services.

 

Fire Chief Ken Fustin says those districts should consolidate and raise taxes within their districts in order to contribute more to the city’s expenses for providing that service.

 

And Fustin says if that doesn’t happen, the city may be forced to reduce the level of response it provides for fires in those districts.
