24-357: Idanha-Detroit Rural Fire Protection DistrictCaption: Five Year Local Option Levy for Emergency Service Operations
Question: Shall District impose $.68 per $1,000 of assessed value for five years beginning in 2014-2015 for general emergency service operations? This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent.
Summary: The Idanha-Detroit Rural Fire Protection District Board of Directors determined the District needs additional funding to maintain emergency service operations. The Board believes that the District’s fire and life safety response services are an important asset to our community and should be funded at an increased level so as to better serve our community.
The District Board also desires to be good stewards of taxpayer money. With existing revenues failing to fund adequate operations, the Board decided to ask the taxpayers whether they will approve this levy in order to maintain the current level of emergency response services.
The District has one part-time employee and one part-time Fire Chief. The District also has a shortage of active volunteers. At the same time, the District is experiencing an increase in calls for service. If this measure is approved it will allow the District to fund positions necessary to provide safe staffing levels for emergency calls.
The proposed rate of $.68 would generate approximately $40,367.00 in 2014-2015, $41,578.00 in 2015-2016, $42,825.00 in 2016-2017, $44,110.00 in 2017-2018 and $45,433.00 in 2018-2019 for a total of $214,313.00.
