Town seeks bids on a study of its fiscal options

Moving ahead with a project that has provoked the ire of Menlo Park Fire Protection District officials, Atherton has asked consultants to submit proposals for a fiscal study of fire services in the town. The study will examine, among other things, how much it would cost the town to provide its own fire and emergency services.

The description of the scope of work requested by a consultant says the town’s over-arching question is whether its house values have increased to the point that the funds received by the Fire District via house taxes far exceed the cost to provide basic fire services to the community?

Article length: About 410 words.
