BE AN INFORMED VOTER: TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MEETINGS AND
RESOURCES TO MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT

After months of discussions and assessing the need to do something about the quality and wait times for ambulance service, the final step in the proposed solution is in sight.  The District, Chief Edmund Cain of The Villages Public Safety Department, The Daily Sun, and The VHA have all done their part in informing Villages residents of the need and the process.  Now, after receiving approval from the State of Florida to form The Villages Independent Fire Control and Rescue District, it is up to voters to decide whether or not that solution will be implemented. 

There is an air of certainty that the proposal will be approved, but some concerns and questions may still remain for voters as to whether or not the individual price tag will be worth the improvements promised.  New equipment has already been acquired, and more purchased with delivery dates in the near future.  So how exactly will things change, and what will it cost individual home owners, and what formula exactly is being used to determine that cost? 

The Villages Homeowner’s Advocates has schedule two informational meetings, OPEN TO ALL RESIDENTS OF THE VILLAGES, to answer those questions, and any others you may have: 

SEPTEMBER 14, 2022 @ 7:00 p.m.

Lake Miona Regional Recreation Center
1526 Buena Vista Blvd.

OCTOBER 24, 2022 @ 7:00 p.m.

Ezell Regional Recreation Center
769 Marilee Pl.

NOTE:  Both meetings will feature Chief Edmund Cain of The Villages Public Safety Department, and District employees who will be able to give you a personalized, good-faith estimate of how, and if, it will affect your out-of-pocket costs.
