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!
