Corbett Fire District No. 14 General Obligation Bond Authorization

Question: Shall Corbett Fire District No. 14 issue $4,500,000 general obligation bonds to finance capital costs, improvements and equipment?

Summary: If approved, bond proceeds will be used to finance capital costs and improvements, including:

  • Expansion and renovation of the 3 District stations to meet current District needs, including equipment storage and access and possibly seismic upgrades to existing facilities;

Bonds would mature in 21 years or less from the date of issuance and may be issued in one or more series. The average annual tax rate is estimated to be $.65 per $1,000.00 of taxable assessed value. Actual rates may vary based upon interest rates incurred and changes in taxable assessed value. The estimated tax cost for the measure is an estimate only, based on the best information available from the county assessor at the time of the estimate.
