Voters living within the boundaries of Laramie County Fire District #1 will decide on Tuesday, Nov. 5, whether to approve a $3.1 million bond for equipment purchases and fire station improvements.

Laramie County Assessor Ken Guille says if approved, the six-year bond would cost a $200,000 home owner approximately $25 per year.

The funds raised through the bond would be used to purchase fire trucks and firefighting equipment to equip LCFD#1's new fire station to be constructed at Archer, and replace older trucks and equipment as well as make needed improvements at the district's existing fire stations on Allison Road and Terry Ranch Road.

According to Laramie County Clerk Debra Lee, there are approximately 2,800 registered voters in Fire District #1 -- a 180-square mile area that extends south of Cheyenne to the Colorado border.

Those wishing to vote in Tuesday's bond election can cast their ballot at the fire station at 207 E. Allison Road from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. A sample ballot and other information on the Nov. 5 election can be found by clicking here.
