ST. GEORGE- Fire department leaders here plan to take advantage of the upcoming Presidential Election.

The organization will add a tax renewal vote to the election this year, instead of having it on a smaller ballot next year.

The fire department says it will also save money and the vote will get a higher turnout.

The renewal is described as the "backbone of operations," funding development, maintenance and operations like fire hydrant service.

If passed, the renewal would take effect in 2014.
