Skagit County Fire District #17 Tax Levy Ballot Measure, November 2024

On March 11, 2024, the Guemes Island Fire Department adopted R esolution No. 469 providing for the
submission to the voters on November 5, 2024 a proposition authorizing the District to
restore its regular property tax levy to $.50 per $1,000.00 of true and assessed valuation
in 2024 for collection in 2025 to be adjusted by the CPI for each of the following five
years, subject to otherwise applicable statutory limitations. This would represent a $.19 per $1,000 increase over the current tax levy rate.  The Fire Department is accepting names of people interested in participating in voter pamphlet statement pro and con committees. Appointments must be made by August 6, 2024.
Citizens interested in participating, please contact Fire Commissioner Chairman David
Wertheimer by August 1, 2024.
