The Itasca Fire District will hold a town meeting March 22 at 7pm
The town meeting, held at the Itasca Fire Station, 520 W. Irving Park Road, will be to discuss the proposed tax referendum on the April 4 ballot.
After many months of deliberation, the District Trustees and Command staff of the Itasca Fire District believe the best way to avert a significant shortfall is to approach Itasca taxpayers, and ask them to consider a tax increase.
Approval of this referendum would allow the District to continue operations uninterrupted, maintain existing service levels and implement several much needed improvements to the existing fire station.
Any questions please contact Itasca Fire District at 630-773-1223
