The Edmonds City Council at its meeting last night decided that it will hold one more public hearing next Monday, Nov. 2 on a 20-year contract with Snohomish County Fire District. The council is likely to take a final vote on the preferred option, Option 4, on that date.
Under Option 4, the city would sell the fire engines, aid cars and equipment to Fire District 1, but keep the fire stations, land and emergency medical service transport fees the city now collects. All city fire employees would become Fire District 1 employees and the city would pay the Fire District quarterly to cover the personnel costs.
More information on last night’s meeting will be posted later today.
