The board of directors of the Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company urge voters in the North Fork Conservancy District to vote "yes" on Ballot Question 4A. We believe the proposal to allow the conservancy district to accept grant money and manage tax revenues more productively, with no increase in tax assessments, will be beneficial to the entire geographic area. While the benefits to irrigation water users would be most apparent with the passage of this measure, conservancy district projects have provided economic, habitat and lifestyle benefits to all area residents. The board of directors of the Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company represents more than 480 irrigation water users within the conservancy district and we are in total support of the ballot measure proposed for the November election.
