Project 2018

Project 2018 consists of multiple projects that Redings Mill Fire District proposed for funding in an April 2017 mill levy increase. The increased funding was passed by voters and below we have listed the projects and some timelines for their completion.

We will post updates to each project as they progress. If you have questions about any of these projects please contact us at Redings Mill Fire District at 417-624-2715.
