Voters In Fond du Lac Will Decide Public Safety Referendum Today
With election day upon us, officials with the City of Fond du Lac Police and Fire departments are continuing with their push for voters to approve a $1.3 million public safety referendum that is on Tuesday’s ballot.
If approved, the referendum would increase the City’s annual tax levy to cover the cost for six additional firefighter/paramedics, and six additional police officers – along with the equipment those staff members require.
Assistant Police Chief Aaron Goldstein tells KFIZ News that the police department has seen an increase of about 5,000 calls for service in the last decade, and having additional officers will help them better respond to the increased demand.
More information on the public safety referendum can be found at fdl.wi.gov/referendum. Polls are open 7 AM until 8 PM Tuesday.
