Full List of Measures
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.
Kernville-Gleneden Beach-Lincoln Beach Water District
Five-Year Local Option Tax for Capital Projects.
Shall the District levy $0.68 per $1,000 of assessed value each year for five years for Capital Projects beginning 2012 to 2013? This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than 3%.
This measure, if approved, would authorize the District to levy a local option tax of $0.68 per $1,000 each year for five years beginning 2012 to 2013. The tax revenues from this measure would allow the Kernville-Gleneden Beach-Lincoln Beach Water District (District) to renovate and add to its water system infrastructure to increase the system's capacity to meet current and future demand. Without the additional revenue, the District will have to increase user rates or ask for the voters' approval of a Bond measure to fund the anticipated capital projects to increase the system's capacity. It is estimated that this measure would raise approximately $435,213 in tax revenues for 2012 to 2013; $448,270 in tax revenues for 2013 to 2014; $461,718 in tax revenues for 2014 to 2015; $475,569 in tax revenues for 2015 to 2016; and $489,836 in tax revenues for 2016 to 2017.
Seal Rock Water District
Seal Rock Water District General Obligation Bond Authorization.
Shall Seal Rock Water District be authorized to issue general obligation bonds not exceeding $15,000,000 to finance capital costs? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of sections 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution.
Approval of this measure would finance capital costs to the District's water system and systems supplying water to the District, including:
- A share of capital costs associated with providing water to the District from the City of Toledo or other public entities.
- Replacing aging water lines throughout the District.
- Installing and replacing fire hydrants and making other repairs as outlined in the 2010 Master Plan.
- Refinancing outstanding borrowings to reduce costs to the District's ratepayers.
- Fees associated with issuing the bonds.
The bonds may be issued in more than one series and each series will mature in 25 years or less from its issuance date. The estimated average annual cost of the bonds would be $1.4484 per $1,000 of assessed value. The owner of a home with an assessed value of $100,000 is estimated to pay $144.84 a year.
Central Oregon Coast Fire and Rescue District
Local Option Tax Renewal for Central Oregon Coast Fire District.
Shall Central Coast Fire and Rescue renew a levy of $0.25 per $1,000 assessed value for ten years beginning 2013 to 2014? This measure renews current local option taxes.
If approved, the revenue acquired from renewing this tax would allow the Central Oregon Coast Fire and Rescue District to replace two fire engines, two advanced life support ambulances, a 3000-gallon water tender, and other necessary capital equipment over the life of the ten-year local option tax.
It is estimated that by renewing the 25 cents per $1,000 assessed value local option tax, this measure would raise approximately $88,755 for 2013 to 2014, $91,417 in tax revenue for 2014 to 2015, $94,160 in tax revenue for 2015 to 2016, $96,985 in tax revenue for 2016 to 2017, $99,894 in tax revenue for 2017 to 2018, $102,891 in tax revenue for 2018 to 2019, $105,978 in tax revenue for 2019 to 2020, $109,157 in tax revenue for 2020 to 2021, $112,432 in tax revenue for 2021 to 2022, and $115,805 in revenue for 2022 to 2023. The total estimated revenue to be received over the life of the local option tax would be $1,017,474.
Yachats Rural Fire Protection District
Renewal of Local Option Tax for the Yachats Fire District.
Shall Yachats Fire District renew its tax for operations of 59¢ per $1000 assessed value for five years beginning 2013 to 2014? This measure renews current local option taxes.
Approval of this measure would renew the current five-year local option tax set to expire in the tax year 2012 to 2013, at the same rate now in effect, for an additional five years.
It is estimated that this measure would raise approximately $281,419 in tax revenues for 2013 to 2014, $289,862 in tax revenues for 2014 to 2015, $298,558 in tax revenues for 2015 to 2016, $307,515 in tax revenues for 2016 to 2017, and $316,740 in tax revenues for 2017 to 2018.
Revenues would be used by the Yachats Rural Fire Protection District to continue Emergency Medical Services, replace older vehicles, continue expanded training, and purchase hoses and small equipment.
