The Rockland Fire Protection District Board of Trustees has been presented with a proposal from Libertyville Fire Department to provide all fire and ambulance services.
For the last two years Libertyville Fire Department has been providing ambulance service to the residents of the district. This new proposal is all-inclusive and would affect all operations of the Knollwood Fire Department. The proposal has many moving parts and will affect property taxes, service response times, and general fire service as residents have known it for the last 50 years.
Chief Richard Carani of the Libertyville Fire Department has been asked to provide a presentation to the residents, explain their proposal, and answer questions from the residents. There have been numerous rumors and misinformation spreading around. We strongly encourage you attend this meeting to get the facts and ask any questions you may have.
The meeting will be held at the Knollwood Fire Station, 14 Skokie Blvd., on Monday, January 30, at 6:30 p.m. Should you have any questions prior to the meeting, please feel free to contact any of the three trustees: Dan Rogers (847-648-1878, [email protected]), Bob Grum (847-309-9460, [email protected]), or Karl Snoblin (847-494-8838, [email protected]).
