About The Measure

Spokane County Fire District 8 is asking voters to approve it’s first ever Maintenance and Operations levy. The levy would collect $400,000 per year for two years and would cost homeowners an estimated 17 cents per $1,000 in assessed home value. District leaders say the levy is needed to help replace some of the revenue lost in recent years to what they say are declining property taxes.
