2014 Maintenance & Operations Levy Request - After struggling to maintain levels of service with declining tax revenues for the past five years, NKF&R is proposing a temporary special levy on the November ballot. The vast majority of the dsitrict's funding comes from property taxes. Since the recession struck in 2009, the assessed valuation in NKF&R's service area has plummeted by 25%. While costs have continued to rise, the district's tax revenues have dropped; in 2014 alone, the district will receive $600,000 less than in 2009. NKF&R has been able to maintain levels of service by implementing a wide range of efficiencies including leaving positions vacant, freezing employee wages, sharing resources with other agencies, deferring apparatus replacement and more. Although the economy appears to be recovering, it isn't growing fast enough to restore the funding necessary to continue current levels of service. The request is for an additional $600,000 in tax revenue per year for the next four years. For individual property owners, if approved, this measure would cost an estimated $0.25 per thousand dollars of assessed property valuation. The rate per thousand would decline if the district's property values increase.
