Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

The Board of Fire Commissioners of South Whidbey Fire/EMS, a fire protection district, adopted Resolution No. 2012-10 concerning a proposal to increase its regular property tax levy. If approved, this proposition would authorize the District to exceed the 1% property tax increase limitation by increasing the levy rate from approximately $.61 to $.76 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for the District’s 2012 regular property tax levy for collection in 2013, subject to any otherwise applicable dollar rate limitations. Thereafter, such levy amount would be used to compute dollar levy limitations for subsequent years as allowed by chapter 84.55 RCW. Should this proposition be approved?[1][2]
