Higgins Fire Protection District parcel tax, Measure B (June 2012)
This measure was defeated; if Measure B had been approved, it would have increased the parcel tax paid by property owners in the Higgins Fire Protection District from $25/year to $125/year; a $100 increase. The $25/year parcel tax has been in effect since 1980.
This measure needed a 2/3rds supermajority vote to be approved.
- These final results are from the Nevada County elections office.
Jerry Good, who is the fire chief of the district, said that if Measure B is rejected, the fire district will experience "layoffs and the closure of one of the three stations" in the district.
