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.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
