Renton Firefighters Support Proposition #1 for Regional Fire Authority
April 26 the residents of of the City of Renton and Fire District 25 will vote on whether or not to form a Regional Fire Authority.  The Renton Firefighters fully support this measure for a better future for both the residents and the department.  Many tax limiting initiatives over the past years have resulted in unintended consequences.

Renton Regional Fire Authority (RFA)
Renton Firefighters would like to encourage you to get informed about the upcoming election in April that will decide the future of our Fire and Emergency Services. The Regional Fire Authority, or RFA, is a special purpose district that provides stable funding for fire and emergency services.
Proposed Renton Regional Fire Authority Proposition No. 1

Link below is to the King County Elections website describing what the Proposition #1 ballot measure will say.

Proposed Renton Regional Fire Authority
Proposition No. 1

The City of Renton and King County Fire Protection District No. 25 have adopted a Joint Resolution approving the Renton Regional Fire Authority Plan (“plan”) to create the Renton Regional Fire Authority (“Authority”) with an effective date of July 1, 2016.

If approved, this proposition would create the Authority, in accordance with the Plan, to provide fire protection and emergency medical services in the City and the District. The Authority will be funded by a six-year fire benefit charge (not to exceed 60% of the operating budget) and property tax (not to exceed $1.00 per $1,000 of assessed value). This funding would replace the District’s existing property tax rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value, and would reduce Renton’s property tax capacity by the tax rate collected by the Authority.

Should the Plan to create a Regional Fire Protection Service Authority be approved?
