North County Fire Levy Lid Lift

North County Fire is asking voters to lift its levy lid by 14 cents to return the fire levy to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value. After the first count released Tuesday night, the result is too close to call.

Voters approved a fire levy rate of $1.50 per $1,000 in 2008. Since that time, the fire levy rate has fallen to $1.36. Levy rates fall as property values rise to limit the Fire Authority to roughly the same amount of revenue per year, plus a 1% increase allowed by law.

If approved by voters, the 14-cent lid lift would last for six years and cost the owner of a $350,000 home an additional $49 per year ($4.08 per month). The money would be used to hire six emergency personnel and supporting apparatus to respond to higher call volumes, according to the Fire Authority.
