Personnel additions and designs for fire stations headline some of the bigger expenditures for Clallam County Fire District 3 next year. Whether or not fire commissioners will ask voters for a levy lid lift remains undecided, but it is part of the 2023 budget — tentatively up to $100,000 — along with costs involved in running a fire commissioner race, according to district documents. “We need to make a decision fairly soon because there’s timelines involved,” District 3 chief Ben Andrews said in a phone interview. “There’s a lot of conversations to [come].” Although it is based in Sequim, the fire district’s 142-square-mile service area extends about 3 miles east of the Clallam County line into what was formerly a portion of Jefferson County Fire District 5. That portion was annexed into Fire District 3 in 2008.
