White Salmon Council To Discuss West Klickitat Fire Authority

The White Salmon City Council will be discussing the proposed West Klickitat Regional Fire Authority at a pair of meetings in the coming days.  The Council will talk about the proposal to bring together City and Klickitat County Fire District 3 fire services at their regular meeting on Wednesday and at a special meeting on Monday.  If Councilors give the go-ahead, the proposed authority would go to voters in November.  It includes a 76 cent per thousand dollars of assessed property value tax levy, something City taxpayers have not had for fire service before.  Mayor Marla Keethler says the City has been behind in spending on fire protection for a number of years, and residents have been concerned about growing wildfire risks.  The regular White Salmon City Council meeting is Wednesday at 6 p.m., with the special meeting on Monday at 6 p.m., both at the White Salmon Fire Hall.
