Officials in the Prospect Heights Fire Protection District are seeking to restore services lost since the 2008 Great Recession took hold, and they say they can do it with a minimal request to exceed the tax cap. By minimal, they mean an increase of about $30 a year for the owner of a $300,000 home. That amount would let the district restore cuts that have been made at a time when demands are increasing and return staffing to the levels of 2013. The district's demands are not excessive. The challenges facing it are real. We recommend a yes vote.
