Fire district waits on help from state bills


May 31, 2019

With Gov. Tim Walz yet to sign the set of state budget bills the Legislature passed over the weekend, Cloquet Area Fire District chief Kevin Schroeder said he was “95 percent sure” that the fire district got one of its three three requests.

Language that will allow CAFD to bond and incur debt is included in the omnibus bill that passed both the House and the Senate.

With the fix, the fire district could bond for the cost of a new truck, for example, or the proposed new $10-$12 million fire station.
