Cuts and deficits are now an afterthought for firefighters and paramedics for the immediate future following Clallam voters’ decision to increase Clallam County Fire District 3’s levy lid lift. Tuesday’s results show 7,801 (60.6 percent) voted in favor of increasing the levy rate from $1.26 per $1,000 of assessed valuation to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value, while 5,061 voted against the increase. “The lid lift wasn’t to do new things,” said Fire District 3 Chief Ben Andrews. “It’s to provide the level we’re at now. “We weren’t trying to add something; (voters) knew we were just trying to keep the machine going.”
