Fall City Community Association to moderate debate on fire merger, March 28th

The Fall City Community Association (FCCA) will be moderating a town hall meeting regarding the upcoming April 23rd ballot measure to merge Fall City Fire District 27 into larger, Fire District 10 which includes the unincorporated King County areas of Carnation, Issaquah, Sammamish and Renton and is currently served by Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R)

FCCA said in a letter to residents, “We at the Fall City Community Association (FCCA) are aware of the opportunity for Fall City residents to vote to support or oppose the merger of the Fall City Fire District 27 into Fire District 10.  One of the primary missions of the FCCA is to ‘proactively communicate on local issues’ with Fall City residents.”

The FCCA will moderate the town hall discussion on Thursday, March 28th from 7:00-8:30pm at Chief Kanim Middle School.

The format will include an introduction by the FCCA and 5 minute presentations by two persons representing the “pro” position and two persons representing the “con” position.

The remaining time will be answering eight questions asked by the event moderators. Each committee will be given 3 minutes to answer each question. Each committee will then be given 5 minutes to conclude their argument.

FCAA said there will be no live questions or comments from the audience. They will instead source the eight questions for this event ahead of time.

Those who would like to submit debate questions for the moderators can submit the here prior to 8pm on Monday, March 25th. Submit questions HERE.

The eight final questions will be selected by the pro/con committees before 8:00pm Tuesday, March 26th from the results of the question submissions.

Residents can view all the posed questions HERE
