GVFD Chief pushes for more annexation progress

Green Valley Fire District’s annexation efforts in northern Sahuarita have crossed the halfway mark for the initial phase, but the district’s chief wants to see momentum increase to meet targeted deadlines.

The Sahuarita Town Council gave GVFD its go-ahead on Jan. 23. In October, the town’s subscription-based fire and emergency service provider, Rural Metro, informed them it would discontinue operations in the area. Rural Metro Chief Karl Isselhard has told the Town Council that a lack of subscriptions and increased costs led to the company’s decision to leave Sahuarita.
