Discussion regarding Regional Fire Authority Fire Chief Dave Willson briefed Council on the Regional Fire Authority (RFA) feasibility study. He introduced Martin Goughnour of Emergency Services Consulting International who assisted in preparing the feasibility study. Mr Goughnour noted this is a regional plan, which allows growth rather than a single agency in the confines of a city boundary that requires assistance from neighboring jurisdictions. The Planning Committee will decide the next step and when to take it to their respective elected officials.
