The Perkasie Fire Company held a public forum on their request to increase the Fire Tax to fund the purchase of a new fire engine/pumper and have now scheduled an additional Open House-type event for anyone interested in further information before voting in November. Long range capital improvements were also discussed. To read a copy of the memorandum that was prepared for the meeting, please click below.
PFC – Funding Request
The open house event will be held at the Fire Hall, 100 North 5th Street on Saturday, October 25 from Noon-5:00 pm.
The Fire Tax is currently at 1 mil, with the entire amount dedicated to pay for the ladder truck that was purchased in 2006. The Fire Company is looking to continue that 1 mil to purchase a pumper/ engine in 2015. They are also requesting an additional 0.5 mil in funding to help fund capital projects. Please check back soon for more detailed information on this request.
