We would agree with Dave Perry, editor & publisher of The Explorer when he editorializes that it is "proper to talk," referring to the boards of NWFD & GRFD considering consolidaing the two fire districts.
Prior to Mr. Perry arriving in Oro Valley, GRFD & Rural Metro Fire Department also held talks.
The result of those talks cost 1000's of Oro Valley citizens hundreds of dollars a year as a result of increased fire service rates and the demise of Rural Metro as a fire service provider.
Any taxpayer that isn't concerned about these "consolidation talks," may ultimately find that their future fire service bills will once again escalate dramatically.
Read what Mr. Perry has to say here.
