Long-time Fountain resident and leader Fran Carrick is hosting a meeting at the First United Methodist Church, 1003 N. Santa Fe Ave. in Fountain, on Thursday, June 16, at 6 p.m. regarding the city of Fountain’s recent survey related to public safety needs and a possible mill levy increase. The topic was the focus of a survey the city has just completed.
“There are many questions about this topic and it will be good to have some answers,” she said.
Fountain Chief of Police Chris Heberer will be there, in addition to other first responders, to answer your questions and consider your concerns.
Just a few of the questions are:
*What does this mean for you, as a property owner and citizen of Fountain?
*How much is this going to cost me?
*What are response times in Fountain?
*What is the increase in crime in Fountain?
*What is current staffing in our emergency departments?
*Did you know that 400+ homes are being built at Link and Kane?
*Did you know that 6,000 homes are being planned just east of Fountain?
“I have some real concerns about the quality of life, as I know it now, and am anxious to see a plan of what ‘they’ believe we need, how will it be delivered, and for how long,” Carrick stated. “Please feel free to invite your neighbors and friends. There is plenty of seating and there will be refreshments.”
