Fire Equipment Bond
The Board of Directors of South Lane County Fire & Rescue have elected to place an Equipment Bond on the ballot for the 2015 November General Election.
Please visit http://southlanefire.org/news/2015-bond-information.
The proposed bond will generate an estimated 2.6 Million dollars. The plan is to purchase a much needed ladder truck and replace two aging fire engines and also purchase two water tenders.
Replacing the current, aged out fleet provides safer, up to date apparatus with firefighting capabilities not currently available. These fleet upgrades will directly impact fire protection in the entire fire district.
FACTS: General Obligation Bond
5 ½ year term
Estimated rate is $0.30/$1000 of assessed value
Estimated Total Revenue: 2.6 million
