At the election this year the Dunklin Fire Protection District will be asking you to vote on two propositions.
PROPOSITION S
Proposition Support is in the form of a tax of an additional twenty-five (.25) cents per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation, to be levied annually thereafter.
PROPOSITION P
Proposition Pension is in the form of a tax of an additional five (.05) cents per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation, to be levied annually thereafter.
HISTORY OF THE FIRE DISTRICT
The Dunklin Fire Protection District was formed in 1974 and started with a thirty (.30) cent tax.
In 1980, an additional twenty-five (.25) cent tax was passed to hire the first paid firefighter and to support the growing fire district.
In 1984, an additional ten (.10) cent tax was passed to continue the support of the fire district.
In 1985, the fire district had a tax rate of sixty-five (.65) cents, but was forced to roll the tax rate back after a reassessment to forty (.40) cents.
In 2006, the fire district passed an increase of twenty-five (.25) cents to hire six additional firefighters and replace outdated equipment. This brought us to our current staffing levels of 3 firefighters on duty at all times. At this same election voters approved a five (.05) cent increase to fund a pension for the firefighters. This would not have been possible without the support from you, the voters. The district worked tirelessly for over 20 years to pass these two tax measures.
TODAY
If passed, Proposition S will allow the district to replace aging equipment, continue to fund the daily operations of the district and update the current fire station that was constructed in 1987. Proposition P will allow the district to increase funding to our current pension program for the district firefighters. This would change the current tax rate of .6601 to .9601. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at the station or by phone (636) 475-7401
Sincerely,
Bradley R. Williams
Fire Chief

Dunklin Fire Protection District would like to remind everyone of the fall time change this weekend. When you move your clocks back an hour you should also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors! Remember smoke alarms have a life span of 8-10 years however the batteries should be changed every 6 months! Working smoke alarms are essential to alerting everyone in your household in the event of a fire!
