    So would the cost be equally divided per capita? Would Henderson
    have to put out as much as the City of Las Vegas? Sounds like a waste of time and energy.

    No! How would that thought even occur in your head? That’s a stupid question! Henderson residents would pay the same amount if not less than they do now! It makes it so that instead of having 4 fire administrations, there’s only 1! And instead of 4 different valley wide fire engine mechanics there might only be 2! Not to mention the fire unions can then join together and get cheaper health/dental/vision care because they are a larger organization! I’m sure there is many more benefits fore the citizens but I can not think of them all off the top of my head.
