PUBLIC SAFETY REFERENDUM
The City of Fond du Lac has identified a need to add additional public safety personnel to the Police Department and Fire Rescue.
CRITICAL NEED FOR PUBLIC SAFETY RESOURCES
Current public safety funding is insufficient to meet the growing service demands and needs of the community. Fond du Lac must act now if it is to maintain its first-class fire, paramedic and police services.
The challenge is that while the need and program costs continue to rise, current funding sources are stagnant or decreasing.
As a result of these needs, voters will be asked on April 6, 2021 whether or not to support an increase in the City’s annual tax levy, beginning in 2022, to cover the cost for six additional firefighter/paramedics, six additional police officers, and the equipment those staff members require.
Resources that provide additional details about this critical need for additional firefighter/paramedics and additional police officers are available here.
