Text of measure

Question on the ballot:

Shall district levy $141,469 annually to fund Fire Chief’s Budget for five years beginning July 1, 2014? This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent.[1][2]


This measure would continue the five year local option tax by Cannon Beach Fire Protection District paying for training, vehicle, administrative costs and salary for funding the position of the full-time District Fire Chief. The Fire Chief directs 25 volunteer firefighters who respond to approximately 330 calls annually for emergency medical problems, fires, highway accidents, surf & cliff rescues and hazardous material incidents. The Fire Chief manages compliance with state and federal regulations, disaster planning and mutual aid agreements with neighboring communities. The Fire Chief also manages budgets, maintenance of fire trucks, equipment, and stations valued at over $4 million dollars. Estimated tax impact is $0.1488 per thousand of assessed property value, or $14.88 on a $100,000 home in the first year. The local option tax collected between July 2014 and June 2019 is $141,469 annually, or $707,345 in total. The estimated cost of this measure is an ESTIMATE ONLY based on the best information available from the County Assessor at the time of the estimate.[1][2]
