How can the Mountain Vista Fire District board justify cancelling their contract with a perfectly good provider (Rural/Metro) and then charging their taxpayers more for the same service? At a time when so many people are struggling financially from unemployment and underemployment, this is simply irresponsible. One wonders how Golder Ranch Fire District can provide the same service at a lower rate. If the answer is that Golder Ranch is bigger, then maybe Mountain Vista is too small.
