In what could be the final nail in the coffin for auto/mutual aid between Contra Costa Fire Protection District and East Contra Costa Fire Protection District, there is a meeting scheduled for Monday June 24 to discuss the Fire Station 87 closure on West Leland Road in Pittsburg.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at Pittsburg City Hall, Council Chambers, 65 Civic Avenue.
The closure is necessary to close a budget deficit due to reduced revenues from declining property taxes, coupled with increasing costs to the Fire District for personnel and general operations.
The Fire Chief will be joined by members of the Board of Directors at this meeting. Fire District staff and Board members will be available to answer questions regarding the closure and efforts to reduce the impact to the community during the meeting.
