Tax Revenue and Rural Fire Departments

In  2011 we had  property tax revenue of $115,191.  For 2018, our revenue is $81,267.  This is a $33,924 decrease in revenue with which to operate the department.  The State of Colorado is predicting an additional decrease in revenue again for 2019.  While this is great for property owners, is not so great for your fire department operating expenses.  Since the district has no other steady revenue stream, this decrease is starting to take toll on the department reserves, as well as the ability to equip the station and volunteers.

Bottom line, our projected expense are greater than our projected income for 2018.  Even as revenue continues to decline, cost of equipment and maintenance rise, along with the number of calls we respond to each year.  Rest assured that we continue to look at revenue options and find other sources of revenue.
