Fire District 5 levy

The Grays Harbor Fire District No. 5 commissioners have put the $360,000 general obligation bond on the November ballot. We’ve looked at the age and mileage of our current ambulances and feel this is necessary.

We currently have four ambulances. The first ambulance is 11 years old with 275,000 miles, the second is 11 years old with 240,000 miles, the third is 11 years old with 111,500 miles and the fourth is 10 years old with 157,000 miles. If this bond is passed, it will allow us to replace two ambulances.

If this bond is passed, it will cost approximately $13 for every $100,000 your home/business is valued at, for a duration of five years.

My hope is that by writing this letter now, you will have time to come to us with your questions and will be able to give some serious thought as to the importance of this bond.

I encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns!

I can be reached by phone at 482-4519, or by email
