Clark County Fire & Rescue, along with the City of Woodland and Clark County Fire District #2, proposed a ballot measure in April to form a new Regional Fire Authority that would eliminate the current tax for fire protection and create a new, single, uniform tax structure for everyone, at the same rate currently paid by citizens in Woodland and Clark County Fire & Rescue.   The intent was to streamline existing operations and better position the District for stability and long-range planning.  The measure narrowly failed.  
Please help us better understand the concerns of our citizens by completing the survey found at our Survey Portal..
