MIDDLETON -- A levy that will determine the fate of Middleton Rural Fire District, heads to the voters in less than a month.
So until then, the city is holding public information meetings, to try and get residents to understand the consequences.
On Thursday night, residents gathered inside the fire hall to learn more about the levy.
The district is currently facing a $400,000 shortfall.
Property owners are already paying an average of $120 a year to the department in taxes and Middleton firefighters are hoping voters will agree to continue paying that.
Voters will decide on May 15th.
If it isn't approved, the department will go all volunteer.
