The Spokane County Auditor's Office may have slightly different percentages than are reflected here because its figures include any write-in votes.

About The Measure

The town of Rockford has two levies on the ballot, both to replace expiring levies. The first would help fund the fire department, a one-year levy would bring in $12,400, costing 51 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. Replacing firefighter equipment is an ongoing expense for the town, said Rockford Mayor Carrie Roecks. “The needs are always the same,” she said.
