NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF BALLOT TITLE Hoodland Fire District #74 CAPTION: Local Option Levy to Maintain Fire and Emergency Medical Services QUESTION: Shall HFD maintain fire and emergency medical services by levying 25cent(s) per $1,000 of AV for five years, beginning 2019-2020? This measure may cause property taxes to increase by more than three percent. SUMMARY: Hoodland Fire District #74 provides fire and emergency medical services to residents of Marmot, Cherryville, Brightwood, Wemme, Welches, Zig Zag, Rhododendron, Government Camp and surrounding areas. Operations are funded through local property taxes. Levy funds would: – Help ensure three firefighter/paramedics with Advanced Life Support training, which improves survival rates, are available to respond at all hours. – Stabilize funding so the District can continue to provide emergency response by career firefighter/paramedics 24 hours a day, seven days a week. – Add a chief officer with firefighter/paramedic skills to ensure command coverage 24/7 and allow faster response to many second-call situations that would otherwise have to wait 20 minutes or more for responders from neighboring districts to arrive. The levy would fund services at a fixed rate of 25cent(s) per $1,000 of assessed value. For a home assessed at $150,000, about average for residential property in the District, the cost would be about $38 per year. (Assessed value is different than market value.) Estimated revenue for each year of the levy: $266,956 in 2019-2020 $276,266 in 2020-2021 $284,495 in 2021-2022 $292,971 in 2022-2023 $301,701 in 2023-2024 This ballot title was filed with the County Clerk of Clackamas County on Friday, March 1, 2019. Voters have until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 to petition for review of the ballot title in the Clackamas County Circuit Court.
