Spokane EMS Levy

About The Measure

The city of Spokane is hoping voters renew its 6-year fire levy. It generates about $8 million a year for the Fire Department. If renewed, the levy will run for another six years through 2022, and bring in 50 cents for every $1,000 of assessed property value. That comes to about $75 a year for a $150,000 house.
