Tooele Transcript Bulletin - Another tax pitch gets shot down North Tooele County Fire District Chief Randy Willden (center) talks about the proposed tax increase for the district to expand service Thursday night at the NTCFD Lake Point Fire Station. North Tooele County Fire District Chief Randy Willden (center) talks about the proposed tax increase for the district to expand service Thursday night at the NTCFD Lake Point Fire Station. slideshow Before the public spoke, however, NTCFD Chief Randy Willden pitched the 10 percent increase - which would amount to an extra $8.18 per year for the owner of a $200,000 house and another $14.88 per year for the owner of a $200,000 business - by explaining it would bring in a total of $68,765 and allow the department to hire a fourth full-time firefighter. The four full-time firefighters would then split into two alternating 14-hour, two-day shifts that would put them on duty during the time when approximately 84 percent of all calls have come in throughout the last few years, Willden said, leaving a smaller amount of calls to be responded to by volunteers. The increased coverage would also help firefighters be better equipped to respond to a rising number of calls as Tooele County grows, he said. "We have an increase in calls for service but no increase in revenue, so it creates a problem where we are just not able to cover all the calls for service," Willden said. Willden said in the meantime district administrators would be trying to find extra funding in mitigation fees and grants. If the requisite funding is found before the tax rate comes into effect, Willden said, the fire district would not implement the new rate.

On Thursday the North Tooele County Fire District Administrative Board passed a tax rate increase of 14.3 percent. - photography / Maegan Burr North Tooele County Fire District Chief Randy Willden speaks at a truth-in-taxation meeting at the Lake Point Fire Station last Tuesday. The hike was approved by a unanimous vote of three present board members - a fourth member was excused and the fifth board seat, previously held by the district's new chief, Randy Willden, has remained vacant since he took that position in June. For a resident of the unincorporated areas in northern Tooele County covered by NTCFD, that increase figures out to be approximately $7.70 cents on a $250,000 home, rising from $84.29 to $91.99. "The only caveat is one of the board members asked that we keep looking for more ways to save money," Willden said. "So we're continuing to look for more ways that will save the district money." The 14.3 percent increase, which was lowered from a 19.53 increase proposed last December, was introduced primarily to facilitate a pay-per-call system to bolster response during the times of day when most calls come in, Willden said. Since becoming chief, Willden said he and district firefighters had been trimming the existing budget in hopes of reducing the amount of an increase they would require to implement such a system. The biggest area they have cut has been utilities - 17 lights in the station had been on 24 hours per day and did not have a light switch. Willden said he will continue looking for more efficient ways to light and power the station, including installing a motion detector or system to turn on lights when a fire or medical call comes through, thereby reducing the amount of time the lights are on. "It's not like we're trying to run a Cadillac plan here," he said. Willden said he was happy with the civil responses he has heard about the tax hike, and believes the constructive nature of that feedback is a sign of a cooperative relationship between the department and residents in the area - one he hopes will continue in years to come. "I think the people at the December meeting were satisfied that we reduced the increase," he said.
