WARRENTON RURAL FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT
Question: Shall Warrenton Rural Fire Protection District impose $49,000 each year for five years for general operations beginning 2016-2017? This measure renews current local option taxes.
Summary: This measure will renew an existing local option tax that will expire at the end of Fiscal Year 2015-16. The maximum taxes needed for five years total $245,000, which will be imposed in equal amounts of $49,000 each year. It may not be necessary to assess the full $49,000 each year, particularly in the first few years of the local option tax. In each year, the District will assess only the amount necessary to fund its operating cost, but will not exceed $49,000. The taxes will be used to fund the general operations of the Warrenton Rural Fire Protection District. The taxes are needed to pay for part of the costs of contractual services provided by the City of Warrenton; the District contracts with the City of Warrenton to provide fire protection and emergency medical services in the District. It is estimated that the proposed tax (maximum) will result in a rate of $0.53 per $1,000 of assessed value in the first year. The estimated tax cost for this measure is an ESTIMATE ONLY based on the best information available from the county assessor at the time of the estimate.
