OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A suburban fire district and the city of Omaha have agreed on a plan for the city to provide fire protection rather than have it provided by a new fire department.
The tentative, 10-year agreement was announced Wednesday by Mayor Jean Stothert and Elkhorn Suburban Fire District officials.
The district's board and the city ended negotiations on a new contract after the fire district raised concerns about how much Omaha's services cost. District officials said they'd be moving ahead instead with plans for a new fire department.
