Question 1: Shall the board of directors of Raytown Fire Protection District be authorized to provide emergency ambulance service within the district and be authorized to levy a tax not to exceed thirty cents on the one hundred dollars assessed valuation to provide funds for such service?
Your support will provide: two Raytown advanced life support ambulances in operation 24 hours a day seven days a week, a third Raytown advanced life support ambulance during peak call times, improved quality and stability in the delivery of emergency medical care Raytown receives, Raytown residents will not receive a bill for medically necessary ambulance transports beyond what Medicare and insurance provides for.
Question 2: Shall Raytown Fire Protection District issue its general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed $7,500,000 for the purpose of acquiring vehicles and equipment, refinancing existing outstanding lease obligations and acquiring, furnishing and improving buildings and facilities of the District?
This, a no tax increase reauthorization of 2006 bonds, which passed by a margin of 89%, provides the fire district a 20-year capital purchasing plan. In April of 2016 the Raytown Fire District reduced the total debt of these bonds by $740,000 by refinancing and passed 100% of this savings back to the taxpayers by reducing our debt levy.
