An Eagle River Fire District Levy Increase question was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Eagle County, which is in Colorado.

If approved, this measure would authorize a 3.77 Mill per $100,000 of assessed value for residential and commercial properties.

This measure will partly make up for the loss of revenue due to the drastic drops in Eagle County property value.

Jennifer Cartmell Hays, the Chair of the District’s Board of Directors said, “We have no choice but to bring this question back to the voters. In order to continue providing the level of service our constituents expect, we need this mill levy. If it doesn’t pass, two stations will close permanently in 2014. It’s that simple."[1][2]
