New EDH Fire Facts Website Launched
EDH Fire Facts was created by El Dorado Hills Citizens concerned that their current EDH Fire Board's poor fiscal management is not sustainable, and will ultimately, they claim, result in decreased services.
Although the website is published without any known authorship, it is full of facts, opinions, and supporting documents. The website says that the Guideline principles are Fiscal Responsibility and Sustainability. It makes these claims:
1. The EDH Fire Dept. budget is 50% greater than similar size communities
2. Contracted pension and health benefit costs are not sustainable
3. Highest salaried firefighters in the region - average salary $142,759
4. Yet, EDH FD has fewer calls for service than similar communities (1.5/day)
