Statutory cities may expend public funds to acquire or lease residential property for housing or otherwise provide housing assistance in the city for one or more volunteer firefighters or ambulance personnel. The expenditure may only be made to attract and retain the qualified personnel necessary to ensure that a city has timely public safety and related service. A city may make the expenditure only after the need for the expenditure has been established and approved at a public hearing.
