The Citizens' Fire Services Performance Committee (ID 1396829)

From: domainremoved <Peter>
Date: Mon, 3 Jul 2017 19:49:51 -0700

The purpose of this Committee is to "To conduct surveys regarding citizen satisfaction with current and alternative fire service models”.

The Atherton Town Council has entered into a $50,000 contract to determine, among other things,

 “What is the financial and service feasibility of the Town creating a municipal fire department?”.

Since such an undertaking by the Town (whose 7000 residents comprise less than 8% of the District) would have a profoundly negative impact on the ability of the Fire District to continue to provide high quality fire services to the remaining 83,000 residents of the Fire District it is important to determine the opinions of all of the residents (including those who reside within the Town’s boundaries) of the Fire District regarding such a proposal.

Therefore, the Citizens' Fire Services Performance Committee will be conducted surveys to determine the level of satisfaction of the District’s residents with the Fire District’s performance as well as the opinions of those residents regarding the Atherton Town Council’s contemplated action.

This effort is being done entirely with private funds.

Any suggested questions for these surveys or comments on the Fire District’s performance would be welcomed via a response to this email.

Please feel free to forward this email to other impacted Fire District residents.
