Election proclamation1What is this election about?
1. Laramie County Fire District #1 proposes to purchase fire trucks and firefighting equipment to equip the District's new fire station to be constructed at Archer, and replace older trucks and equipment at the District's fire stations on Allison Road and Terry Ranch Road, and to make needed improvements to those two existing fire stations. The number of businesses and residents residing in the District has grown and the board of directors of the District has determined that the firefighting equipment and the station improvements are necessary to adequately serve the fire protection and public safety needs of the District.
To pay for the costs associated with the equipment purchases and station improvements, the District requests the authority to issue general obligation bonds in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $3,100,000 bearing a maximum rate or rates of interest not to exceed 3.5% per annum and to mature within six (6) years of their respective dates. The bonds will be payable from ad valorem property taxes levied against all taxable property in the District in amounts sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds in each year, and the bonds would be sold on such terms and conditions as the District may determine. The tax will expire when the bonds have been fully paid.
