Hauser Rural Fire Protection District Position 1

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter or an landowner in the district. If the district has a supporting ordinance, employees of the district are not eligible.

Term 4 year
The past few years the department as gone from 18 to 24 active volunteers to 8 to 10 today. Responding to emergency has declined from 8 to 112 volunteers per call to 3 to 5. There is an unfair tax burden on the Hauser Home owners. The Past several years my opponent has voted to increase the Property tax to the maximum amount which is more than twice the amount it takes to run the department. The amount taxed 2019-2020 was $220,000, the amount spent was $188,912. The $111,000 of over taxed monies were added to a fund that over the past several years has grown to half a million uncommitted dollars, and keeps growing. This means if the taxes are reduced to the amount to actual cost to run the Fire District you the tax payer’s bill should be reduced by half. Saving the tax payers $150 to $300 a year.
