What is the cost difference between LA County Fire and LVFD services?

The cost to the City’s General Fund would be greater with the LA County Fire service delivery model than with the LVFD model. As an example of this cost difference, for Fiscal Year 2020-2021 LVFD would cost about $7.7 million and LA County Fire would cost $7.9 million, while in the Fiscal Year 2022-2023 the cost is projected to be about $8.2 million for LVFD and $8.8 million for LA County Fire. While the projected comparative cost difference changes year to year, a portion of this increased cost stems from the 5.5% annual cost increase outlined in the feasibility study submitted by LA County Fire.
