On Tuesday, the Moab Valley Fire Protection District Board approved a memorandum of understanding that they will receive funding from Grand County. The Grand County Council passed the memorandum last week with several last-minute changes, which the district had to approve for the memorandum to be officially adopted.

Rather than a three-year agreement, the memorandum specifies a one-year term of the agreement to allow the parties to review and update it if necessary. The agreement says that the district will receive $1,800 per incident that falls outside of their district, excluding Castle Valley. Regardless of the number of incidents, they will receive a minimum of $50,000 and a maximum of $100,000.

The board approved the agreement unanimously.

“[The one-year contract] will give us both a chance to re-look at it and see where we’re at,” said Moab Fire Department Chief Phil Mosher.
