If passed, the levy will replace the current five-year local option levy that expires in June 2025 and will collect a fixed rate of $0.75 per $1,000 of assessed value.
In 2023, homeowners with an assessed home value of $200,000 would pay $94 more per year, or $7.83 more per month for improved 24/7 emergency services.
In addition, increased staffing directly impacts the fire district’s ISO rating which directly influences homeowners’ insurance premiums. Thank you, citizens, for approving the local option levy in 2020. The improvements that we made under the current levy will cause our ISO rating to improve from 3 to 2 during our next re-rate.
