The Spokane County Auditor's Office may have slightly different percentages than are reflected here because its figures include any write-in votes.
Spokane County Fire District 4 is asking voters in Tuesday’s election for a $9.6 million, 20-year bond to build three fire stations and a fire training center. The money also would update communication systems and provide new vehicles and equipment for crews. The bond, which must be passed by 60 percent of voters, would be paid back at the same property tax rate – $27 a year on a $100,000 home – as the district’s current bond, passed in 2000 and set to expire at the end of this year.
Spokane County Fire District 9’s proposed levy would provide the district 60 percent of its maintenance and operational costs, and must be approved by 60 percent of voters to pass. The levy proposal renews the same tax rate as the current levy: $179 a year for a $100,000 home. The two-year tax has been renewed by voters for the past 26 years.
