As Manson Fire District Commissioners continue the process for two annexation requests- a public hearing held earlier this month may have created more questions than it answered.

For the first time since the Manson Fire District was formed, in 1950, Fire Commissioners are considering 2 annexations and, Fire Chief, Arnold Baker says they held a public hearing for one of those requests earlier this month…

072516 Manson Annexation 1 :54 “…getting more information.”

Chief Baker says the Emerson Acres Public Hearing will be held at their next Commissioners meeting, which is set for Tuesday, August 9th…

072516 Manson Annexation 2 :40 “…rest of the district.”

Annexation is a process by which a district expands its boundaries into areas not already incorporated.

Chief Baker says this is particularly important during incidents that require state mobilization…

072516 Manson Annexation 3 :49 “…addressed all the issues.”

The public hearing for Emerson Acres annexation into Chelan County 5 in Manson’s fire district will be held at 4:30PM on Tuesday, August 9th.
