In 2001 the voters of the Hawk Point Fire District approved a tax base of 24 cent to fund your fire department. That was 19 years ago. Today, 2020, we operate 2 fire stations, 2 fire trucks,2 water tankers, 2 brush units, and 1brush UTV. The stations and aging equipment require ongoing maintenance, fuel, water, electric, sewer, general care. The fire truck at station 1 (in Hawk Point) is 31 years old, the water tanker is 34 years old. The fire truck at station 2 is 15 years old, and the water tanker is 44 years old. Each of the 2 fire trucks carry rescue tools (known as the "Jaws of Life") that are heading toward the 15 and 20 year old mark. The Hawk Point Fire District operates on a yearly budget of approximately $117000 per year andcover approximately 140 square miles using this equipment. Responding to car wrecks, medical calls ( heart attacks, overdoses, sick cases, etc), house fires, commercial fires, brush fires, and general calls for help. On November 3 rd, the fire district is asking for a 14 cent tax to start upgrading the aging fire trucks and equipment that is used to maintain a level of safety for those we serve. The 14 cents is based on per $100 assessed evaluation of the property. This is broke down into 3 tax bases; 12 % for agriculture, 19% for residential, 32 % for businesses. Calculated as follows; $50,000 house X 19%=9500 divided by100 is 95 X .14=$13.30 per year increase, a $100,000 house x19%= 19000 divided By 100 =190 X .14=26.60 per year. The plan for the .14 is set to replace an aging fire truck very 5 years along with aging rescue equipment, starting with the oldest and most unreliable truck and equipment. Please view these trucks under fire truck and tanker tabs. The Tax is called "PROP C S (Community Safety) ".
