LITTLETON UNIFICATION ELECTION INFORMATION 

In April 2018, the City of Littleton's City Council approved South Metro Fire Rescue being their service provider starting in 2019.  The ultimate goal is for the properties to fully include into the fire district so that the City will no longer contract for fire and emergency services.  This will require a vote of the citizens, and the South Metro board of directors officially called for that election on May 2nd.  The election will be held on November 6, 2018.
