Tieton City Annexation into Yakima County Fire District (November 2010)
This measure was approved
- YES 993 (84.27%)
- NO 181 (15.73%)
This measure asked city voters if they wanted the city to be annexed into the Yakima County Fire District 1 area. Prior, the city paid the fire district for protection through a contract, but the city found the services offered were being charged more than they cost to others who were in the district area. Since it was approved, homeowners will pay $.71 per $1,000 of assessed property value towards the district protection, a cost less than the current contract rate.
