Rusheba Township Requests New Fire Contract Formula
Leadership in Rusheba Township is calling on the Rush City Council to change its funding formula for fire contracts. Since 2001, Rusheba’s cost increased over $20,000. John Moulton and Peter Johnson represented the township at Monday’s city council meeting. They asked for more consistency in the formula, but the council argued they need to do what’s best for the all the townships.
Moulton speaking with council member Mick Louzek.
Rush City currently has fire contracts with six townships. The current formula is based primarily on the number of calls received by each township. While Rusheba’s actual calls are down, the percentage of calls compared to other townships is higher. The council agreed to look into an advisory council to exam the current formula.
Council member Jamie Amundson
If the advisory committee is formed, it was proposed to meet on a quarterly basis.
