[ARCHIVED] Organization and Funding Options for Fire Department

Fire Department

During the week of August 17, one of the main topics of conversation at City meetings will be the future of the Milton-Milton Township Fire Department.

On July 15 and July 30, the Joint Fire Commission for the Milton-Milton Township Fire Department heard presentations from Fire Chief Ernie Rhodes and City of Milton Finance Director / Treasurer Dan Nelson about organization and funding options for the fire department.  Two scenarios were presented: Consolidation with Janesville or a Standalone Department.  

At the Council meeting on August 18, staff will summarize the presentations that were given to the Joint Fire Commission.  They will also answer questions regarding the two scenarios and how those pertain specifically to the City.

At the joint meeting of the City of Milton Common Council and Town of Milton Board on August 19, the two governing bodies will discuss the two scenarios that were presented to the Joint Fire Commission.  If there is a preferred scenario, the two governing bodies will have the opportunity to direct staff to evaluate the scenario further to ensure the projected costs are as accurate as possible.

Both the Common Council meeting on Tuesday and the joint meeting of the City of Milton and Town of Milton will be virtual. Instructions on how to monitor the meetings are included on the agendas (
