An Asotin County Fire District 1 Levy Implementation measure was on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the fire district 1 area of Asotin County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 2,927 (66.52%)Approveda
  • NO 1,473 (33.48%)[1]

This measure sought to implement a levy at a rate of $.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a period of six years in order to further pay for emergency medical services in the district area.[2] The previous tax for the fire district was set at $.53, but district officials had hoped with the reduction it will be approved by residents. District officials noted that if this measure was approved, it will allow them to plan for the future since they know they would have a steady income from the property tax.[3]
