After more than eight months of debate, the Fishers Fire District Board of Commissioners will at last decide what, if any, the district’s role will be in a proposed Victor Consolidated Fire District.
Two public meetings are set: On Tuesday, March 13, commissioners will hammer out salary details for newly promoted lieutenants in executive session, and discuss regular business in open session. On Tuesday, March 20, they’ll vote on consolidation. Both events start at 6:30 p.m.
The March 20 vote has been a long time coming. It’s the fourth scheduled vote for Fishers, three of which saw eleventh-hour cancellations in November and December. The commissioners — most newly seated in December — will decide whether to dissolve their century-old district and become part of the proposed Victor Consolidated Fire District, along with the Victor Fire Department.
“I honestly don’t know how it’s going to go,” said Commissioners Chair Chuck Herb, who replaces former Chair Maureen Bills.
“I’m just waiting to see what’s going to happen,” he said. “This is a big deal between the village and the town; it is going to have repercussions for several years down the road.”
The vote on March 20 will take place near the start of the meeting, Herb said, after opportunity for public comment has been given.
