Marin IJ Editorial: Keep taxpayers in the loop on possible Larkspur-Corte Madera fire department merger

Published Saturday March 11

Taxpayers, whose tax dollars support these departments, should also be informed and involved…

The consolidation of the Larkspur and Corte Madera fire departments makes a lot of sense. The 2 departments work so closely together today that when it comes to responding to emergencies a merger would likely be seamless.

But the decision-makers, the members of the Larkspur and Corte Madera councils, need to make a strong, detailed case to taxpayers, as well.

Taxpayers deserve to know, upfront, whether the merger is going to require another local tax increase.

They deserve to know how much the pensions for firefighters and administrators are going to cost the employer — those same taxpayers.
