With minimal discussion Tuesday morning, the Idyllwild Fire Protection District commission unanimously adopted the proposed agreement with San Jacinto city to form a joint powers authority.

The agreement between the two agencies will create an agency to serve as the San Jacinto Fire Department. The draft agreement specifies that the city will be responsible for authorizing the type of fire and emergency services and paying for their costs.

While San Jacinto city officials looked on, the commission easily adopted the draft agreement without any opposition. The San Jacinto City Council had the topic on its agenda for its June 7 evening meeting, too.

The JPA board will appoint its chief, who functions as the San Jacinto Fire Department chief. The agreement specifically allows the IFPD chief to assume that role.
