MCFR Bond Measure On November Ballot

Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue is seeking a bond measure on the November ballot that would replace the current bond that will come off the tax rolls at the end of 2017.  MCFR Chief Bob Palmer says the district need to replace some aging fire apparatus and ambulances, and make facility improvements at both of their stations.  He adds property tax compression in Wasco County makes it difficult for the district’s revenues to keep pace with operational costs, so they need the bond funds to replace equipment.  This bond would be for 15 years, and would generate $3.85 million.  The tax rate would be the same as the bond that ends in December 2017:   21 cents per thousand dollars of assessed property value.
