Fire, Police Levies Could be on August ballot
Renewal levies to be voted on by City Council next week
Council discussed the levies during Monday's work session.
"The quality of services we get from these departments with no increase in these levies in years is impressive," said councilman Bryan Jensen.
The levies would be voted on in the August 7 special election.
The fire levy is for .5 mills for five years, and will generate about $273,447 per year. The police levy is for .5 mills over five years, and will generate about $369,511 per year.
The levies are for what is called "capital assets," such as computer equipment or police cars. Money from the levies is not used for day-to-day operations.
The money from the current fire department levy helped purchase a new squad vehicle for the department earlier this year.
