FIRE DEPARTMENT NEWS

Fire District seeks voters to write pro and con statements

The Board of Commissioners will be submitting a ballot measure requesting voter approval of an excess levy at the November 3rd general election. This proposed M&O levy replaces an existing levy which expires this year. The District continues to experience increases in the cost of providing fire protection and emergency medical services and cannot maintain current staffing and service levels within the limitations of the District’s regular tax levy. The renewal of the M&O levy will provide funds required by the District to maintain and improve the level of service in the District. 

As part of the election process, the District is looking for individuals who would be interested in participating on committees to write the statements for and against the ballot measure. These statements will appear in the voters’ pamphlet along with the description of the ballot measure. Individuals wanting to participate need to be a registered voter and live in the Fire District. Submit your letter of interest to the District office by 5:00 p.m. July 10, 2020, addressed to the Board of Commissioners at King County Fire District 27, PO Box 609, Fall City, WA 98024, or email to
king27@king27fire.com  For more information please call 425-222-5841.

 

The proposed M&O levy would be collected in 2021-2024. In 2021 the levy amount would be $650,000 and would increase each year by about 4%. The actual levy amounts would be $650,000 in 2021, $676,000 in 2022, $703,000 in 2023, and $731,000 in 2024. The estimated levy rate is expected to be $0.47208 per $1,000 of assessed valuation (based on 2020 assessed values). This represents an increase of $0.12710 per $1,000 of assessed valuation (based on 2020 assessed values).  For a property valued at $500,000, the increase is estimated to be $63.55 annually or about $5.29 per month.

PRACTICE YOUR ESCAPE

If a fire occurred in your home tonight, would your family get out safely?

A fast, pre-planned escape is critical to survival.

Waking up to smoke and flames is one of the worst things that can happen to your family and home. Once the smoke alarm sounds, a fire can spread quickly, leaving only a few minutes to escape. That's why it's so important to have a home fire escape plan, that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly.
