Currently, the City of Crystal has just moved past their letter of intent to dissolve the West Metro Fire District. They have made progress and are moving forward again to strengthen this joint venture between Crystal and New Hope. I support having a fire district that works and having communication between members that is responsive to our needs. The shared service has many benefits in saving costs for our city, but we must make sure that it remains accountable to the citizens of Crystal.
The West Metro Fire District does a wonderful job responding to the citizens of Crystal and New Hope in fire and emergency situations. As a City Council member, I will work hard to keep the lines of communication open between the members of the West Metro Fire District. I want to see the West Metro Fire District remain intact.
