Leavenworth’s Fire District #3 to Put Tax Levy on Fall Ballot

Chelan County Fire District #3 centered in Leavenworth currently collects 39 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. Their Fire Chief Kelly O’Brien tells KOHO that’s one of the lowest rates in the county, even though they protect a high property value district.
The district’s commissioners plan to ask voters this August to approve a new levy rate – $1 per $1,000 of assessed property value – to pay for additional staff and increase their wildland fire fighting capabilities.
Chief O’Brien joins Chris Hansen on the KOHO Morning Show.
