Merger Proposal of Fire Districts 3 and 7 Winning Yes Votes By Wide Margin
August 03, 2016



(MONROE, WA.) -- In the early vote count from Tuesday's Primary election, Snohomish County Fire District 3's Proposition 1, to merge with Fire District 7 to save taxpayers money, consolidate overhead and improve service was winning by a big margin -- 81.06% yes votes to 18.94% no.

Approval means the tax rate for property owners in Fire District 3 will decrease from a projected $2.10 to a projected $1.98 per $1,000 evaluation based on 2016 assessed valuations. (The tax rate for property owners in Fire District 7 will not be affected.)

In addition, with the merger the fire districts will be able to improve emergency services for both communities with additional resources for firefighter training and large-scale disasters, according to fire officials.

A statement issued June 29 by both districts said voter approval for the merger would also reduce the bureaucracy and costs associated with running two organizations.

Snohomish County's Proposition 1, a sales tax increase measure to hire more sheriff's deputies and fight the opioid epidemic was trailing slightly with the no votes at 50.65% and the yes votes at 49.35%.
