Those in support of Measure B, Measure K, fire board candidates and residents who are concerned in general will gather at a town hall meeting at Newcastle Elementary this week.

The town hall meeting will give residents in support of Measure B and Measure K the chance to discuss which they feel will be more effective in procuring funds for a new Newcastle firehouse, maintaining pay increases for firefighters, and providing benefit packages for employees.

The three incumbents and three challengers to the Newcastle Fire Protection District Board of Directors will also be at the meeting to declare where they stand on the issues the district currently faces.

The town hall meeting will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. in the gym of Newcastle Elementary School.
