The City of Sun Prairie has contracted with a consulting firm to study funding allocation for the Sun Prairie Fire Department, thanks to action taken Aug. 16 by the city council’s Committee of the Whole. A portion of the costs for the $5,132, two-month study will be paid for by the towns of Bristol and Sun Prairie that receive fire service from SPFD. McGrath Consulting Group, Inc. will develop a comprehensive Fire Department Fiscal Funding Plan for the City of Sun Prairie. “We are confident we can develop and provide a quality report that addresses the current and future fire/EMS fiscal and funding needs for the City of Sun Prairie and the Townships that contract with the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department [SPVFD] for fire and EMS services,” Tim McGrath from McGrath Consulting Group Inc. in a cover letter to City Administrator Aaron Oppenheimer. “The Funding Plan will address the need for a funding formula that is fair to all parties and provides adequate funding to the SPVFD into the future.”
