North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District Number 1

Five-year General Operating Local Option Tax.


Shall the District impose a tax of $.19 per $1,000 of assessed value for five years beginning 2012-13 for general operations? This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than 3%.


North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District Number 1 is seeking a five-year local option tax for general operations. Monies are needed to fund five on-duty stipend volunteer firefighters on weeknights and weekends and to hire a full-time public education/safety compliance fire officer.

This levy will allow the District to maintain current levels of fire, EMS, water rescue, and motor vehicle crash responses. These funds will be used to maintain and update fire stations. This local option tax will allow the purchase of protective clothing for fire and rescue personnel and the purchase of four additional Tsunami sirens and maintenance of those sirens.

The proposed rate will raise approximately $292,912 from 2012 to 2013; $336,374 from 2013 to 2014; $343,101 from 2014 to 2015; $349,963 from 2015 to 2016; and $356,963 from 2016 to 2017.
