Riverside Fire Excess

 Levy Passing 

Riverside Fire Authority’s excess levy request is just passing after additional ballots were counted Thursday and Friday. 

The levy was at 60.48 percent passing, just above the  60 percent supermajority, as of Friday

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