NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF BALLOT TITLE Canby Rural Fire Protection District No. 62

NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF BALLOT TITLE Canby Rural Fire Protection District No. 62 CAPTION: Renew local option levy for fire and emergency medical services. QUESTION: Shall Canby Fire District maintain emergency response services by levying $0.45 per $1,000 assessed value for five years, beginning 2021? This measure renews current local option taxes. SUMMARY: This proposed levy would renew a current local option levy that expires in 2021. The levy renewal would be used to retain six current Firefighter/Paramedics funded by the expiring levy. The District responds to over 3,000 fire and medical emergency calls each year. This is a 37% increase in fire and emergency medical response over the past five years. This increase impacts the District’s ability to provide an immediate response to all calls. The renewal of the levy would be used to continue to fund two ambulance crews for rapid response during peak hours and improve response support when calls overlap. The levy renewal rate is $0.45 per $1,000 assessed property value, the same as the current rate. For a typical property assessed at $250,000, the annual cost would be approximately $112, about $10 per month. If the proposed levy fails, the existing levy will expire in 2021, at which time property taxes on a typical property would decline about $112 per year. The levy renewal is projected to raise $5,597,553 over five years: 2021-22 $1,075,617 2022-23 $1,097,129 2023-24 $1,119,072 2024-25 $1,141,453 2025-26 $1,164,282 This ballot title was filed with the County Clerk of Clackamas County on Thursday, July 23, 2020.
