District voters approve $1.575 million bond levy


May 24, 2016

Sweet Home voters approved a $1.575 million bond levy request by the Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District in the May 17 primary election.

Voting for the bond were 2,006, 54.91 percent. Voting no were 1,471, 40.27 percent.

The 6-year bond will cost taxpayers 31 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, a reduction of 6 cents from another bond the district will pay off early next year.

The two bonds will overlap, but the rate for November will be 30 cents or less.

The new bond will be used to replace the district’s rescue units, ambulances and the battalion chief’s response vehicle.
