Fire District Merger
Thank you, public

To the Editor:
On behalf of Monroe Fire District No. 3, I would like to thank the community for participating in recent discussions about a proposed merger with Snohomish County Fire District 7.
We appreciate the time you gave to learn about how the merger would benefit taxpayers and improve emergency services. Based on public input, our board voted to place the merger on the Aug. 2 primary election ballot for voter approval.
Many fire districts are merging to improve service and efficiencies for taxpayers. Fire District 3 already shares a repair shop, community resource paramedic and administrative functions with Fire District 7. These efforts have made both agencies more efficient, and improved operations for the communities we serve. The merger would make these benefits permanent, as well as reduce taxes for our community by creating economies of scale.

Commissioner Bill Snyder
Chair, Monroe Fire 3 board
