The North Bannock County Fire District has found it necessary to form its own fire department in order to ensure fire protection for the residents living in the North Bannock County Fire District. To ensure the successful development of the department, a vote on a levy increase is scheduled for August 6, 2019. To help understand the why, what and how, an open informational meeting is being scheduled.

When: August 1, 2019 (Thursday) @ 7:00 pm

Where: Red Lion Hotel Bannock Room

1555 Pocatello Creek Rd, Pocatello

The purpose of the meeting is to inform voters of the current status of the volunteer fire department, to explain the need for the levy increase and answer any questions that voters may have concerning the proposed vote and the fire department.

fire station to provide fire services.
