Local News in Brief : Fire Dept. Bond Measure

July 07, 1988

The Los Angeles City Council moved Wednesday to place a $57-million bond issue on the Nov. 8 ballot that would finance a new radio and dispatch system for the Fire Department.

If adopted by voters, the bond measure would pay for a $50-million dispatching system as well as a new radio system to replace equipment that has been used by the department for nearly 40 years.

Property taxes would rise about $11 a year for the average homeowner if the measure passes.

The Fire Department measure would be the second placed on the November ballot. Last week, the council moved to place a $90-million library bond issue before voters in the fall.
