TrailMark Board of Directors Meeting Minutes – July 21 and Sept. 15, 2015

Obviously there are concerns with emergency response times at TrailMark as indicted in the excerpt from their Board of Directors Meeting Minutes of Sept. 15, 2015.  If you have ever had to call 911 you know how stressful it is to wait for help to arrive.  I have and each minute seems like an eternity.
What is important about the following information is the fact that TrailMark residents are being told about a solution to their problem with response times but council has not had a single public meeting on the subject.  It is obvious that business is taking place outside of the council meetings and outside of the public’s view and without the support of the majority of the council.
From their minutes July 21, 2015:

Emergency Response Times in TrailMark: Director Russell relayed Director Tolle’s report for May and June. During the two months, response times ranged from 8-12 minutes. There is a possibility that the City of Littleton may terminate their IGA with West Metro Fire in the spring of 2016.  

From their minutes Sept. 15, 2015:

 Emergency Response Times in TrailMark – Director Tolle reported that in July there were five calls for service with response times ranging from 7:50-12:53 minutes.  For August, there are two calls ranging from 11:25-17:32 minutes.  Long response times seem to begin with long dispatch times due to confusion about TrailMark’s location and station responsibility.  Beginning in April 2016, fire coverage for TrailMark will return to Littleton Fire #16.  The Board will continue to monitor response times and advocate on behalf of TrailMark residents.

TrailMark to Get New Fire Station – Or So It Seems – Council Has Yet to Discuss This Publically

Below is a memo from the city manager to the city council members.  Apparently it no longer takes a vote of the council to move forward with the building and staffing of a fire station in Littleton.  Don’t get me wrong, TrailMark deserves the same response times to their emergencies as we do.  We will have to wait until December to know what this station will cost the taxpayers of Littleton.

I will also post the TrailMark HOA minutes – they have been briefed on the coming fire station even though it has not been a council discussion – at least not in public.  Since this memo was written we have learned that Shea Homes and the city were unable to negotiate a suitable arrangement for the station.  Latest word we have is that it will be built inside the subdivision.
