Opinion

A job well done

  It appears to me that our Fire Commissioners are doing a great job! According to your previous report, they (or at least one) worked to give us a $50,000 budget savings plus a reduction in our benefits charge and additional savings in the reserve (which should go back to the taxpayers). Now fellow taxpayers, doesn't that sound like they are doing a good job? Most of the complaints we keep hearing seem to be coming from employees and their friends, some of which don't even live and pay taxes in our Woodinville Fire District. I urge the Commissioners to keep up their effort to deliver quality fire protection while holding down spending and taxes.
