The Crescent City Volunteer Firefighter’s Association hosted a car wash last Friday to raise money and awareness about their upcoming benefit assessment.

The car wash asked patrons for $5 donations, which will be used for continued marketing of the campaign. Property owners should expect ballots in their mailboxes in the coming weeks for Crescent City Fire Protection District’s benefit assessment. If approved, the fire protection district will be able to use the boost in funding from property taxes to continue operations. However, if the assessment fails, their funding could run out within two years.

At a Monday city council meeting, Fire Chief Bill Gillespie said the firefighters washed more than 100 cars on Friday, and they have more fundraisers in the works. They will host a fish fry on May 15 from 4-8 p.m. Patrons of the fish fry will have a chance to win a helicopter ride for three, donated by Cal-Ore Life Flight.
