Voters in the Shelley-Firth Fire District will be asked to approve a $1.7 million bond to build a new fire station in Shelley and to renovate the existing Firth fire station on the May 15 ballot.
The cost to property owners in the fire district depends on the tax value of the person's property.
If your home is worth $100,000, the rate for fire protection will increase $7 each year. This is a cost of 58 cents each month.
If your home is worth $200,000, the rate will increase $21.86 for a monthly increase of $1.82.
The installments for the bond will not extend over 30 years.
