Lacey/Fire District talk compromise

July 2nd, 2009 by Ken

Negotiations between the City of Lacey and Fire District 3 are continuing and centering around division of assets, as the city continues to move towards creating its own fire department.

But, Lacey City Manager Greg Cuoio also says that the two sides are talking some form of compromise.  “We’ve told the fire district what it has to do if it wants us to renew our contract with them,” Cuoio said. 

“We want to be able to control staffing.”

Cuoio said that in any contract, the contracting agency has the right to determine what type of staffing it wants.  That’s what the city wants in any renewal of contract with the district.

Cuoio said the city had several other criteria before it would renew its contract with the district, but until then, the two sides are continuing to discuss division of assets.
