Voters within the confines of Fire District #2 are considering a Fire Levy Lid Lift on their General Election Ballots, and the district has scheduled a virtual meeting to share information to voters..
The local fire district issued a press release regarding the proposition on the November 3 ballot,
They say that their regular fire levy has continued to decrease since the last voter-approved measure ended.
The last measure approved in 2011 set the rate at a $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value.
Since then the rate has dropped to $1.27 per $1,000 of assessed value.
If approved by voters, the fire levy rate would return to $1.50 per $1,000. This is called a fire levy “lid lift.” It would last for one year and the levy rate would start to decrease again. The rate can never exceed the voter approved rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value.
