The county shall require evidence of need from the fire district as a prerequisite to requiring dedication or reservation. The hearing examiner may set a time limit on the effective period of any reservation.
(2) The applicant may be required to present evidence in the form of a letter or agreement with the affected fire district documenting that the applicant has agreed to offset the cost of the district’s growth which is reasonably attributable to the proposed subdivision.
