Washougal voters will soon be asked to approve a six-year replacement emergency medical services levy.
Ballots, which are expected to arrive in local mailboxes later this week, will need to be postmarked no later than Tuesday, Aug. 17.
If the levy is approved, the current tax rate of 50 cents per $1,000 assessed property value will not increase.
“The levy will not cost homeowners any additional tax since it is simply a renewal of an existing levy for another six years to maintain EMS service within Washougal,” said Camas Fire Capt. Kevin Bergstrom.
As president of the Camas/Washougal Professional Firefighters Local 2444, he represents firefighters in Camas and Washougal.
