According to C-5 Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief John Alquist C-5 has been funded entirely by donations since its beginning in 1988.  Alquist said that the ESD will allow for a steady source of income to fund expenses.

According to Alquist the added funds should allow for the department to obtain a better rating making homeowners insurance cheaper for residents.  A $100,000 home would pay about $60 a year according to Alquist.

A local option election for Dekalb, New Boston, and Redwater voters will give them the option to sell beer and wine in their communities.
