The Alger Volunteer Fire Department is tax dependent. Currently, property owners are taxed $.58 per thousand dollars of total property value. Fire District 14 is considering proposing a levy to raise funds. However, it costs money to put a proposed levy on the ballot, money they don't have to spare.
Our community must clearly communicate with the Alger Volunteer Fire Department whether or not they would vote in support of a levy. Stay tuned for further community meetings regarding this important issue. As of right now, folks living within the area in need of first aid would have particular trouble receiving help during the day.
Below is a powerpoint that Chief David Skrinde put together for the last community meeting. Unfortunately, only a few community members attended.
