Local Measures

Depoe Bay Rural Fire Protection District

Five-year general operating local option levy to hire firefighters.


Shall the District impose a tax of $0.61 per $1,000 of assessed value beginning from 2015 to 2016, to hire up to 7 firefighters/EMTs?

This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than 3%.


The Depoe Bay Fire District is seeking a five-year local option tax for general operation. Monies are needed to fund up to seven career firefighters/EMTs for emergency response. This levy will allow the District to adequately respond to calls for emergencies 24 hours a day seven days a week with a career crew of up to 3 when volunteer firefighters may not be available.

Career firefighters/EMTs would be placed on rotating shifts to ensure emergency responders are available for your emergency. Often volunteers are working and may be unavailable for responding, often leaving one career firefighter to respond either alone, or with a minimal crew. Volunteering is still an important aspect of the Fire Service, however, times have changed and time demands on volunteers have become increasingly difficult to balance.

This levy request will help ensure when you call us for an emergency, we will have an adequate crew available to assist you.

The proposed rate will raise approximately $710,237 from 2015 to 2016; $731,544 from 2016 to 2017; $753,491 from 2017 to 2018; $776,095 from 2018 to 2019; and $799, 378 from 2019 to 2020.
