[9/26/16] Fire Commissioners Approve Manson Annexations

Posted in Local Government & Meetings

Chelan County Fire District 5 Commissioners- in Manson– approved the annexations of 2 units just outside the district.

Manson Fire Chief, Arnold Baker, says those two areas are Emerson Acres and Santana Drive…

Instead, Chief Baker says, commissioners will send a letter to those inside the district with primitive, private roads…

Although, adding these areas to Fire District 5 will bring a small amount of funding to the district– Chief Baker says that is not the motivator–

He says annexation allows for state help in case of a wildfire…

The annexation of both properties is effective immediately.
