Earlier this year, the district approved an operational budget of about $12 million. That budget was crafted based partly on revenue from Measure S, the $197-per-parcel tax resoundingly rejected by voters on June 5.
Last week, a split board directed staff to prepare a revised budget based on closing three of the district’s six stations and laying off 15 firefighters. If that decision is confirmed Monday, the district will operate stations staffing three-person crews in Brentwood, Oakley and Discovery Bay. Consideration had also been given to a plan to keep four stations open staffing two firefighters each.
Fire Chief Hugh Henderson said Monday’s meeting would also include information on possibly altering other district operations, including establishing a volunteer component to the district.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Oakley City Hall, 3231 Main St.
