At 59.45 percent approval, a Riverside Fire Authority excess levy request on Tuesday’s ballot is just shy of the required 60 percent supermajority after the first vote count. 

The next vote count will be announced Wednesday afternoon, after The Chronicle’s press deadline. 

A total of 2,510 yes votes were tallied Tuesday 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.
