The community will have the opportunity to hear from Fire Chief, City leaders and ask questions

The City of Whitewater announced it will host three public information sessions regarding the EMS staffing referendum that will appear on fall general election ballots on November 8, 2022. The sessions, one held in September and the other two in October, will be hosted in-person at three separate locations across the City.

“In November, Whitewater residents will be asked whether they support increased property taxes to support EMS staffing,” said Kelly Freeman, Chief of Whitewater Fire and EMS. “These sessions will provide us the opportunity to share information and begin a dialogue with members of the community about the need for increased EMS staffing.”

Each information session will include a presentation from City officials as well as an opportunity to ask questions. Whitewater residents are encouraged to attend one of the three information sessions: 

  • Wednesday, September 21, at 6 p.m. –  Whitewater University Innovation Center, 1221 Innovation Dr.
  • Saturday, October 8, at 10 a.m. – Irvin L. Young Memorial Library, 431 W. Center St
  • Tuesday, October 11, at 5 p.m. – Whitewater Fire Station, 312 W. Whitewater St.
