Didn't we just approve funding for fire with the Proposition 11 EMS replacement levy?

In the November 7, 2023, General Election Ballot, Washougal voters approved Proposition 11 to renew the expiring EMS Levy. An EMS levy is a property tax levy specifically designed and used for the provision of emergency medical services in communities. The Camas-Washougal Fire Department has provided emergency medical services and ambulance transport services for decades. EMS levy funds are restricted to providing EMS services and will be used to continue the provision of these services in our community. The EMS levy supports the operational costs of providing these EMS services.

The EMS levy is a dedicated source of funding used for the provision of emergency medical services in Washougal. It supports EMS operational costs and does NOT cover replacing or updating the critical facilities that the EMS services are housed in.
