Westside Fire District has entered into a joint powers agreement with the Sandpoint and Sagle fire departments effective October 1 2016 . Under the Selkirk JPA each fire department shares equally the costs of the administrative personnel, that is the chief, assistant chief, and administrative assitant. All other expenses and any debt incurred by the individual departments remain their own. Taxing and budgets are also kept separated.
Under this shared management agreement the three agencies operate under a common set of rules and operational procedures, are able to share management expertise, reduce redundancy, pool manpower and share other rescources. This agreement basically takes the existing mutual aid agreements we had in place for emergency responses, elevated them to an automatic aid agreement with the addition of a full time shared management team.
