Re: Central Pierce Fire & Rescue bond measure.
In 2008, voters failed to approve a similar facilities bond with 58 percent support just short of the required 60 percent supermajority. Fire commissioners postponed going to voters again due to our struggling economy.
Now, five years later, the need is even greater and facilities repairs will only become more costly if not addressed.
Now is the time while interest rates and construction costs are still low. Funding these projects now will save taxpayers millions over the life of the bonds. This is a smart investment.
Central Pierce has no debt, clean …
