This means residents in the rural area east of Bend, will pay a tax rate of up to $1.75 per one thousand dollars of assessed property value.

 

This will allow them to hire a fire chief and train volunteer firefighters to help fight fires in their area.

 

David Warren was instrumental in getting the measure passed.

 

"We're just elated.  It passed by a pretty wide margin. Glad so much support.  Glad it's over, it's done."

 

The new fire district will officially form in May and residents will begin paying for the new fire district in July.

 

Warren says they would like to hire a local fire chief in they can find someone qualified.
