The Board of Fire Commissioners of Snohomish County Fire Protection District No. 4 adopted Resolution No. 455 to finance fire protection and other services. This proposition would allow the District to restore its regular tax levy rate to its previously authorized limit of $1.50 per $1,000 assessed value in 2012; and authorize an annual increase of up to 6% (not to exceed a rate of $1.50) for each of the five succeeding years through 2017, but would not authorize an excess levy.
