Fire District 7 Will Hold Public Meetings To Discuss Possible Fire Levy
April 01, 2017



Chronicle staff

(MONROE, WA.) -- Snohomish County Fire District 7 is considering asking voters to restore funding through a fire levy lid lift this fall, for collection in 2018.

There will be two public meetings to present data to the public and allow for feedback.

“We want our community involved,” said Chief Meek. “Regular lid lifts give the public an opportunity to weigh in on funding decisions for emergency services.”

The public meetings will be held on:

Tuesday, April 4th – 7:00 p.m. at Station 71, 8010 180th St SE, Snohomish.

Tuesday, April 18th – 7:00 p.m. at Station 31, 163 Village Court, Monroe.


Funding for emergency services is paid through property taxes, and capped at the voter-approved rate of $2 per $1,000 of assessed property value ($1.50 for fire and 50 cents for EMS).

Over time, these levy rates fall as property values increase. State law limits property tax increases to 1% per year, but the demand for and cost to provide service is often higher than that, says the district.

District offcials say based on the expected growth in the fire district area, the fire levy lid lift would represent a less than 1-cent/$1,000 increase for property owners in former Monroe Fire District 3 ($4 per year for a home valued at $400,000).

Property owners in Fire District 7 would see a 4-cent/$1,000 increase ($16/year) for the same home.
