WHAT IS MEASURE K?
Measure K provides funding for expansion and renovation of the Fieldbrook firehouse. It will increase the current parcel assessment of $42 by $33 for a ten year period. At the end of ten years the $33 increase will automatically revert back to $42.
A YES vote on Measure K will allow the Fieldbrook all-volunteer fire department to continue providing the high level of medical and fire service the community has come to expect. The expansion and renovation of the existing fifty year old building will:
- reduce response time to an incident
- provide storage space for emergency equipment and supplies needed in the event of a large scale catastrophe
- improve the indoor instructional and training area for the volunteers.
The firehouse expansion project is being accomplished using the old “barn-raising” concept of the past. By asking the community to contribute labor, materials, equipment and supplies this project will be completed for one third the cost, were it to be done by outside contractors. The increase to the current parcel assessment is less than a dime a day, yet the benefits gained are immeasurable and far-reaching. The twenty-two volunteers of the Fieldbrook Volunteer Fire Department are there for our community 24 hours a day 365 days a year. The community now has an opportunity to be there for them. On November 5th please vote Yes on Measure K.
