It is time to vote on the IL Fire Protection District

-A A +A

Next Tuesday, on Jan. 18, in a non-binding, advisory referendum, registered voters in the Indian Land Fire District will be asked if Lancaster County Council should establish a fire protection district for the Indian Land area of Lancaster County (meaning the Indian Land Fire District) and fund that district through a fee ($75 per home; $75 per 2,500 square foot or fraction thereof for commercial).
The purpose of the referendum is to advise County Council as to the will of the people. The actual establishment of the ILFPD and repeal of the special tax districts will be accomplished through three readings of a county ordinance, the first reading of which passed Jan. 4.
Four precincts will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.:  Belair, Belair II, Pleasant Valley II, and Van Wyck. Please note that only a portion of Pleasant Valley II and Van Wyck are in the Indian Land Fire District. Voters should go to their regular precinct.  Absentee voting is also available if you qualify.
If you think everyone in the Indian Land Fire District, all residential and commercial, should support the Indian Land Fire Department, please vote in favor of establishing the Indian Land Fire Protection District by marking “In favor of the question.”
This is your fire department. You have a voice and you have a choice – a vote for an Indian Land Fire Protection District says you want a fire department that has the staff and equipment to grow with this community.
Vote “in favor of the question” Jan. 18.
