The Chelan Fire District 7 Board of commissioners unanimously approved placing a levy lid lift on November’s General Election ballot during their June 20th meeting.
The levy lid lift will seek an additional 18 cents per $1,000 property value- that’s on top of the 98 cents per $1,000 taxpayers currently pay.
The levy would be used to fund two new stations along the south shore as well as the apparatus to outfit each location.
Chelan 7 Fire Chief, Tim Lemon, says voters approve the levy, the district will immediately go into action to prepare for the added revenue.
Lemon adds that safety and fire protection are priority and are already taking steps in that direction.
An advocate committee will be put together to help educate tax payers on the specifics of the levy as well as the proposed stations."CLICK HERE" for Audio
