  1. A few years ago Cary FD changed the system to electing board members.

    Which way works out better in terms of fiscal responsibility, I’m not sure.

    Like school board members, yes people run for FD boards also.

    Last tax increase referendum to keep two ambulance crews on duty took three times to pass.

    The district had to ask for more on the referendum than they wanted because of how the law is written.

    To the CFD credit, they still levy for about half of the potential voted on tax increase.

    The chief and board members squeak when they walk, which is a good thing over all.
