I normally do not support special district mill levy increases. I feel that these increases levied on property and business owners need to be shared by all users that the special district provides services for. However, the Delta County Ambulance District is experiencing a financial crisis due to the Affordable Care Act. Reducing services places the citizens of this district at risk and will have a negative impact on other emergency service providers who depend on their quick professional response.
Given these concerns I do support the mill levy increase requested 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.
