Blue Mountain Fire District Formation (November 2009)
The measure was approved.
This proposition created a new fire district within the county and would follow the previously set rules for fire district within the area. This will also allow the district to set a $.95 tax on property to help pay for expenses beginning in 2010.
The ballot read:
The Board of Commissioners for Asotin County have passed a resolution regarding a fire district to be known as "Blue Mountain Fire District #1." If passed, this resolution would create a fire protection district pursuant to RCW 52.02 to provide fire protection to the residents and property owners within the boundaries previously established. The district would be authorized to levy a property tax not to exceed $0.95 cents per thousand dollars of assessed value beginning in 2010.
