About The Measure

The fire district that serves much of northern Spokane County is asking voters to renew the agency’s emergency medical services levy on ballots arriving in the mail for the August election. The tax would cost taxpayers 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, up from 33 cents from the current levy approved in 2010.
