Fire District 3 seeks invitations to speak to community groups about lid lift

Friday, September 8, 2017

Clark County Fire District 3 is looking for opportunities to address community groups about its upcoming fire levy lid lift. Voters will be asked to consider a 13-cent fire levy lid lift during the November General Election. Funding will be used to maintain emergency service levels and protect the community’s insurance rating for home and business owners. If approved by voters, the lid lift is projected to be an additional $4.33 per month ($52 per year) for a property valued at $400,000. The last time voters approved an increase in funding for emergency services was 11 years ago. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Fire Chief Steve Wrightson’s office to schedule a presentation at 360-892-2331 or steve@fire3.org.
