Winlock residents can expect to see a request on the November ballot from Lewis County Fire District 15 for a maintenance and operations levy expected to collect $215,000 per year from 2018 through 2021. The levy is primarily intended to allow the district to hire an additional full-time firefighter to augment its weekday shifts, according to the district. “Current funding mechanisms are inadequate in that there has been a critical need to improve on-duty staffing to meet the demand for service in the presence of declining volunteer participation,” a release from the district posted on its Facebook page states.
