Learn The Facts
In December 2017 the City of Hazelwood initiated the need for legal action by RFPD when the City Council passed a resolution that attempted to terminate the 1995 Fire Service Agreement between the Fire District and City.
The City of Hazelwood is breaking state law and blatantly ignoring a court order and legal agreement that have been in place for more than 20 years.
Since December 2017, RFPD has been working with legal counsel to force the City of Hazelwood to comply with the agreement and provide the appropriate funding to the District.
As these challenges are handled by the justice system, we will continue to provide our residents with the quality emergency services they deserve, despite the efforts of the City of Hazelwood.
We believe our residents, and the community as a whole deserve to know the entire story and learn the facts of the situation. We encourage you to take some time to review the information we have provided on our website and let us know if you have any questions by calling Chief Maynard Howell at (314) 291-6671.
