ROGUE RIVER FIRE DISTRICT #1 LEVY RENEWAL

A YES VOTE ON NOVEMBER 3RD, APPROVES THE LEVY

QUICK FACTS:

  • A YES vote renews existing levy and preserves current services

  • A NO vote will decrease funding to the District impacting our ability to provide the services you have come to expect

  • Levy does not increase current taxes

  • Levy approved since 2000

  • The levy is asking for

      $0.50 per $1,000 of                      assessed value and has                not changed since the                  initial levy in 2000

  • Levy provides about 12% of the District’s operating revenue

  • The District is the sole provider of fire suppression and emergency ambulance service to the community

  • The District responded to 2,218 emergency calls in 2019

The Rogue River Fire District #1 provides fire suppression, emergency medical and paramedic ambulance transportation services. The district serves residents and businesses in the city and unincorporated areas of Rogue River, the unin-
corporated areas of Gold Hill and the unincorporated areas of Grants Pass in Jackson County.

If approved, this measure would authorize the renewal of the expiring local option levy for general district operations at the current rate of $0.50 per $1,000 of assessed value on real property located within the District for five years beginning fiscal year 2021-22. Accordingly, it will not increase the total assessment rates currently imposed on property within the District. The District will use the tax revenue from this measure to continue to operate the District at its present level of service. Failure of the levy will require a reduction in the services the District provides.
