Taylorsville • The issue of whether this west-side community should join the Salt Lake Fire Service Area District will go to a vote a year from now.
Battalion Chief Jay Ziolkowski of the Unified Fire Authority (UFA) told City Council members Wednesday that the Salt Lake County Clerk's Office has verified that opponents of district membership have gathered enough signatures to put the question on the ballot in November 2013. Their petition had 2,478 valid signatures, nearly double the 1,330 needed, he said.
The council had voted 4-1 in the summer to join the district beginning Jan. 1. The district, which is the body that funds the UFA, had planned to add additional fire personnel and a new fire station in Taylorsville and rebuild an existing station.
