West Pierce Fire & Rescue to put levy request on Aug. 4 ballot

The West Pierce Board of Fire Commissioners voted April 7, 2015 to place a four-year maintenance and operations levy request on the August 4th ballot. This four-year request is for $10.9 million dollars annually, replacing the existing levy. This amount will be collected each year, starting in 2016 and going through 2019. This is not a new tax, but a renewal of a maintenance and operations levy the community has supported for over 40 years. This funding represents approximately 35% of the operating budget. This levy request is $200,000 less, annually, compared to the current levy renewed by voters in 2013. [Read more…]
