With two signatures Tuesday night, it became official — the town of Duncan is now part of the Duncan Valley Rural Fire District approved by the annexation of the Town of Duncan into the district. “It’s been a long time coming,” said district board chairman Charles Billinglsey. “I’ve been with the Fire Department since November 1975, and I’ve seen them try and try and try. I’m glad to see it finally happen.” The Citizens For Rural Fire Protection ad hoc committee was tasked with obtaining signatures of approval of 50 percent plus one of property owners within the area to be annexed, with a minimum of 50 percent plus one of the valuation of that property. Committee members gathered 221 valid signatures — with another 12 found to be invalid — with property assessed at a valuation $1.09 million.
