Exceptional Fire Services; Needed Street Improvements

Earlier this year, the Littleton City Council entered into an agreement with South Metro Fire Rescue to begin providing fire services to the community on January 1, 2019. On November 6, voters will be asked to approve full inclusion with South Metro. This means that voters will decide:

  • If South Metro fire services are funded through property taxes
  • If they will be represented in future South Metro elections and decisions

Learn more about the election at South Metro Fire Rescue's Election Information page.

Vote for vs against table

Joining South Metro opens up possibilities to allocate city funds to other community needs such as street improvements while receiving improved fire service.

What It Means To You

If voters approve inclusion, South Metro will begin assessing property tax on Littleton properties in 2020 to fund fire protection services. At the same time, the City will reduce its property tax rate and automatically dedicate $3.1 million to city street improvements each year.
