How will the RFA be funded?

Fire and emergency medical services through the Marysville Fire District are currently funded by a property tax levy in Fire District 12 and out of the general fund in the City of Marysville. An RFA will create a single funding source, with money collected through taxes going directly to the RFA instead of passing through other jurisdictions. 

Funding under an RFA is a key difference from the current structure.

If the RFA is approved, the levy would go into effect in 2020. All residents will pay an RFA levy rate of $1.45 per $1,000 assessed value - this is approximately $435 on a $300,000 home.
