Please vote no on Ballot Issue #5 ... the property tax raise for more money for ambulance services. The mayor or board of Orchard City may be for the increase (letter from Mayor Ken Volgamore published Oct. 26), but no one I know in the senior center here wants it and can't afford it on Social Security that has not been raised in two years ... and this year only .02 percent. My family is still paying off the huge fee charged by the Delta County Ambulance District.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
