As Snohomish County Fire District 12
and the City of Marysville continue to consider proposing the formation of a
Regional Fire Authority (RFA), residents and business representatives are
invited to learn more about the process, ask questions and offer input.
An ‘RFA Community Conversation’ is
scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 27, at 6:30 p.m. at Marysville City Hall, 1049
State Ave., immediately following the RFA Planning Committee meeting. These
meetings will be in Council Chambers on the second floor. Members of the media
are also welcome to attend.
Fire and emergency medical services
are some of the most important services that jurisdictions provide to their residents.
Because population growth and changing demands are impacting service delivery,
the city and fire district are exploring an RFA to meet increasing demands,
enhance operational efficiencies and provide sustainable funding for these
If the city and fire district agree
on a proposed RFA plan, Marysville voters will decide whether to form an RFA
and if so, approve how it is funded.
A second opportunity for public input
in the RFA planning process will take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at Marysville
Fire District Station #62, 10701 Shoultes Rd.
