The city and fire district hope to hear from 500 people about whether they'd support a five year levy of 20 cents per thosand dollars of assessed value to hire more firefighters.

 

It is expected to help improve response times.

 

Fire Chief Larry Langston says the additional staff is needed.

 

"This is all really a result of what started back in January of the past year when a consultant group was brought in to evaluate our fire department and they found we need to improve our response times and we hope to do that my increasing staffing levels.  This is something the city council wants to bring forward."

 

The polling  will run through Sunday.

 

The results will be revealed to the Bend City Council at their meeting on Janaury 8th.

 

The council hopes to put the issue to voters next May.
