PITTSBURG -- A public meeting will be held on Monday to discuss the upcoming closure of one of Pittsburg's three fire stations.
Station 87 of the Contra Costa County Fire District is slated to close July 8 as a result of voters in November rejecting a parcel tax that would have raised $17 million annually over seven years to offset a drop in revenues linked to lower property taxes and higher health care and pension costs.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the council chamber at Pittsburg City Hall, 65 Civic Ave. Fire district staff and board members will be on hand to answer questions regarding the closure and efforts to reduce the impact to the community.
