POLAND FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICTS (FD200, FD210, FD217)

DESCRIPTIVE SUMMARY OF PROPOSED PLAN OF DISSOLUTION

 

   The Poland Fire Protection Districts (FD200, FD210, FD217) Plan of Dissolution provides for the dissolution of the Protection Districts effective February 23, 2018 .

The provision of fire protection and emergency services will be unaffected and will continue to be provided to the area comprising the Protection Districts of the Poland Volunteer Fire Company, Inc. under the auspices of the Board of Fire Commissioners of the newly created Poland Joint Fire District (“PJFD”). All tax revenue collected by the Protection Districts pursuant to the 2017 tax levy has already been remitted to the Poland Volunteer Fire Company, Inc. as payment for services through December 31, 2017. The Protection Districts does not possess any cash assets or own any property. The Protection Districts has no employees. The Board of Fire Commissioners of the PJFD is established and is functional and is the authority having jurisdiction over Poland Volunteer Fire Company, Inc. and thusly, will be obligated to provide for the provision of fire protection and emergency services to those properties within the Protection Districts that are now deemed to be included and incorporated within the boundaries of the PJFD. The Protection Districts will be dissolved effective February 23, 2018 absent any contingency impeding the PJFD from implementing a 2018 budget and tax levy.
