EMS LEVY RENEWAL
Fire District 4 will ask voters to renew the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) levy this fall. The EMS levy will expire at the end of the year if not renewed by voters. Since 1992, voters have approved funding every six years for an EMS levy at $0.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value. In 2010, the fire district asked voters to renew the levy at $0.33 because of a difficult economy.
Since that time, EMS calls have increased 28 percent as have costs for personnel, medical supplies, equipment, fuel, maintenance, and state fees. To meet this demand for service, the Board of Fire Commissioners would like to renew the EMS levy at $0.50 before it expires at the end of 2016. That means the owner of a $200,000 home would pay $100 per year (approximately $8.33 per month) for a 24-hour emergency medical response. The levy funds the EMS program for the district, including emergency personnel, training and certifications, a medical response unit, maintenance, medical equipment, first aid supplies, and equipment replacement.
