As of 8:07 pm on November 3, 2020, King County Elections reported that City of Kirkland Proposition 1, the Fire & Emergency Medical Services Ballot Measure, is passing with 72.54% of votes in favor of the measure. This levy generates approximately $7.3 million per year to fund the construction of a new fire station, modernizing and seismically renovating existing fire stations, and hiring additional firefighter/EMTs and staff. “The City Council wishes to express our profound gratitude to Kirkland voters for overwhelmingly supporting these critical investments,” says Kirkland Mayor Penny Sweet. “Your approval ensures that as Kirkland continues to grow and thrive, our Fire Department will have the resources to provide the high level of service that our community depends on for health and safety.”
