Fire Chief: Why you see the fire truck everywhere you go

By The Staff

The City of Chiefland and Chiefland Fire and Rescue are in the process of preparing to finalize our budget for the 2009/2010 fiscal year. In doing so I presented a budget to the commissioners that had no increases to the city portion of our budget.

This budget will be used to run approximately 1,500 calls located both inside outside of the Chiefland City limits. Our figures for 2009/2010 are as follows:

City of Chiefland $188,261 currently this figure is $188,632.29 for 2008/2009.

The Levy County portion for 09/10 is $199,367 currently this figure is $193,560 for 2008/2009.

The Fowlers Bluff portion given to Fowlers Bluff Fire Department by Levy County for 2009/2010 is $38,193 currently this figure is $37,080 for 2008/2009.

The total budget amount was to be $425,821 for 2009/2010.

Included in this budget I had asked that money not spent for the Fowlers Bluff Fire Department be placed in a budget line item to accumulate funding for future purchases. This would include funding from 2007/2008 which totaled $12,710 and funding from 2008/2009 which would be between $12,000 and $14,000.
