Marysville fire changes
Marysville and Snohomish County Fire District 12 took the final steps in forming a regional fire authority Tuesday, following voter approval for the change in April.
The fire authority will keep the Marysville Fire District name, staff, equipment and service area. Changes to fire service will include more stable funding and a governing body that better represents residents.
The authority is governed by a six-member board composed of city council members and Fire District 12 commissioners. Regular board meetings are scheduled the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
