Ballots due today on EMS levy extension

The Spokesman-Review
Ballots are due today for the city of Spokane’s proposed emergency medical services levy. Voters are deciding whether to continue a 50-cent per $1,000 of assessed property valuation levy, as they have every six years since 1980. The measure would raise $8 million a year, about a fourth of the city Fire Department’s operating budget. Voters in rural Fire Protection District No. 10 also are deciding whether to approve an EMS levy. A list of ballot dropboxes is available Spokane County Elections.
