Town Hall Meeting to Be Held to Discuss Direction of Golf Manor Fire Department

As the Village of Golf Manor works toward controlling expenses and ensuring the sustainability and quality of service and operations, an opportunity has arisen that deserves consideration regarding the long-term viability of maintaining our own independent fire department. This opportunity may involve the potential merger of the Golf Manor Fire Department (GMFD) with the Little Miami Fire District based in Fairfax, OH.

As Village Council considers this proposition, it is important that residents are informed and provide input about three components as a part of considering this plan:

  1. How we budget and the current financial health of the Village
  2. How we sustain the GMFD as an independent fire department and what monies will be needed to do so
  3. What contracting or merging with Little Miami would look like and what monies would be needed to do so

In order to get you up-to-speed on the proposal and allow you to give your Council input, you are requested to attend one of two Town Hall meetings being held at the following times:

Monday, February 20, 2017 @ 7 PM

Golf Manor Community Hall

6450 Wiehe Road

 

Sunday, February 26, 2017 @ 2 PM

Golf Manor Community Hall

6450 Wiehe Road

Presentations will be made by Golf Manor Village Administrator Brian Gilligan, Fire Chief Jim Puthoff and Village Solicitor Terry Donnellon. Mayor Ron Hirth, Vice Mayor Greg Schwartzberg,  and Finance Chair Sharon Chaney, as well as other members of Council, will be available to answer questions.

We encourage you to make time to attend one of these two meetings. In addition, information will be available on the Golf Manor website at https://golfmanoroh.gov/gmfd-sustainability/ as additional information becomes available.
