Support For Phon Sutton

Editor:

I am supporting Phon Sutton for the Hellsgate Fire Board. Phon is right, our taxes for the Hellsgate Fire District are way too high.

The fire station at Tonto Village does not need to have firefighters there full time.

When they are there, they could do some fire prevention like offering courtesy home inspections, check smoke alarms, check for gas leaks, check for clogged chimneys, or do forest clean up.

The fire district taxes are almost as much as the school taxes. Keep in mind a house 50 percent destroyed by fire costs the same to repair as a house 100 percent destroyed by fire.

My fire district taxes are twice as much as my fire insurance.
