This map prepared by the Maumelle Professional Firefighter’s Union, clearly shows the Maumelle residences located outside the current 1.5 preferred driving range and the impact of constructing a new fire station further south in the city. It tells the tale of the third referred question on next Tuesday’s ballot. Issuing $2.48 million in bonds to construct a new fire station in the south part of town. Most of those opposed to the other measures on the ballot support thee fire station issue, at least in their public comments. Proponents note insurance rates will go out if fire engines have to drive 1.5 miles but others said it wasn’t the insurance rates but the ability to treat patients quickly that was the most important issue.
