The question on the ballot:

The Board of Commissioners of South King Fire & Rescue (King County Fire Protection District No. 39) passed Resolution No. 484 concerning a proposition to finance fire services and emergency medical services. This proposition would authorize the District to levy an excess property tax on all taxable property within the District beginning with collection in 2013 and continuing for three years thereafter to be used for maintenance and operations to maintain and increase the current level of fire services and emergency medical services. The levy amount for each of the four years would be $3,500,000 collected each year at approximate rate of $0.29 per $1,000 of assessed value. Should this proposition be approved?[3]
