June 5, 2017
I would like to thank all who have attended one of Timberline's public forums for Gilpin County residents to discuss the upcoming election on June 13, 2017. We truly appreciate your interest in your community! For those of you who couldn't attend, please review the FAQs and feel free to contact us with any other questions. We want you to be as informed as possible.
Currently, 3,500 properties in Gilpin County do not have official fire protection services. The proposed boundaries include all of Gilpin County with the exception of properties that are within the city limits of Black Hawk, Central City, or receive fire protection from Coal Creek Fire. This means that all property owners in Gilpin County will have formal fire protection and everyone will share in the financial burden of protecting the community.
If the inclusion elections does not pass, those property owners will remain without fire protection, which is why the Gilpin County Commissioners unanimously support it. Again, please review the FAQs for further information, and know that we at Timberline are looking forward to serving all of Gilpin County and we hope to see you at the election!
Paul Ondr, Fire Chief
Timberline Fire Protection District
