Delta County Ambulance District (DCAD) is hosting a series of community meetings to discuss the mill levy question on the November ballot. DCAD is seeking a mill levy increase of 3.50 mills, for a total of 5.750 mills. The increase will be used to maintain emergency medical services and offset recent budget shortfalls. Each community meeting will include a short presentation, followed by time for questions and answers.
The schedule is:
Thursday, Oct. 5 -- Bill Heddles Recreation Center, 6 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 10 -- Orchard City Town Hall, 6 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 12 -- Cedaredge Community Center, 6 p.m.

Tuesday, Oct. 24 -- Tour of Station 2 at 14126 Highway 65, Eckert from 2 to 4 p.m.
Ballots will be mailed the week of Oct. 16, and will go only to voters in Crawford (also seeking a mill levy increase) and to electors in the area served by the Delta County Ambulance District.
