NEW ENGINE 191 GOES INTO SERVICE

The new E191 entered service this week and has already responded to a few calls.  After E192 joined the fleet last month, this completes our transition to an all Spartan front-line fleet.

 

In other exciting news, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners approved our FY 2021 budget today.  The property tax mill levy rate will be lowered by over 4% next year.  This is the third year in a row we have lowered the mill levy rate.

 

We are proud to grow with De Soto and northwest Johnson County!
