Budget Committee

South Lane County Fire & Rescue: SLCFR Budget Committee.

South Lane County Fire & Rescue (SLCFR) provides fire and EMS serves to 132 square mile based on voter approved taxing rates, levies, and bonds equaling $1.80/$1000. The current voter approved permanent and levied rate is $1.50/$1000 of assessed property value, including a house and five acres within the District’s boundaries. The District further provides advanced life support ambulance service to an area totaling 850 square miles. The area outside the District’s 132 square mile area does not provide tax revenue. The District operates from four fire stations and staffs the Cottage Grove and Creswell stations 24/7, with a combination of career/resident and community volunteer personnel. The District is managed by the Fire Chief who reports directly to the five member elected Board of Directors. All other District personnel report to the Fire Chief utilizing a chain of command.

The District is seeking qualified individuals with an interest in the success of the District to fill current vacancies on the Budget Committee. The Budget Committee is appointed by the SLCFR Board of Directors. Interested applicants must be at least 18 years of age, be an elector, or a property owner within the district. While any person meeting the requirements may submit an application to the Board of Directors, preference for appointment to the Budget Committee may be given to those residing within the District’s taxing boundaries.
