Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The Board of Commissioners of Thurston County Fire Protection District No. 15 adopted Resolution No. 2012.001 concerning a proposition to restore the District’s regular property tax levy. The proposition would authorize an increase in regular property tax levies in 2013-2018 for fire protection services, equipment and facilities. The 2013 levy rate would be $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value. The limiting factor for calculating the 2014-2018 maximum levies would be the increase in inflation, measured by the consumer price index, as identified in the resolution. The 2018 levy limit shall be used to determine future levy limits.[3]
