Election 2019

Riverside Fire Authority’s excess levy request on Tuesday’s ballot is just passing after additional ballots were counted Thursday. 

The levy was at 60.3 percent passing, just above the  60 percent supermajority.

The next vote count will be announced Friday

A total of 3,269 yes votes were tallied as of Thursday for the request, which asked voters to approve a tax of $.47 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The levy would provide $986,240 to be collected in 2020 for the fire authority. 

The RFA hopes to use the funding to replace four fire trucks with “dual function” pumper/water tender trucks.
