Text of measure

Question on the ballot:

Shall Pleasant Hill Rural Fire Protection District be authorized to issue general obligation bonds not exceeding $2.5 million? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of sections 11 and 11b, Article XI of the ORegon Constitution.[1][2]


If approved, this measure would provide funds for capital costs and bond issuance costs. Specifically, bond proceeds would be used to:
  • Construct, furnish and equip a fire station;
  • Replace and acquire public safety apparatus;
  • Purchase real property and make site improvements; and,
  • Pay bonds issuance costs.

Bonds would mature in twenty (20) years or less from issuance date and may be issued in one or more series. The measure is estimated to cost taxpayers an average of $0.5307 per thousand of assessed value each year. For the owner of a home or property owner, the estimated annual average cost would be $53.07 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value.

The estimated tax cost for this measure is an ESTIMATE ONLY, based on the best information available from the County assessor at the time of the estimate.[1][2]
