Initial results show support for Montesano levy lift

Montesano voters came out in support of the Montesano Fire Department and are approving a levy lift and tax increase.

As of Tuesday night, over 58% of voters were in approval.

Fire Chief Corey Rux spoke with KXRO about the results.

The Fire Safety and Emergency Services levy will increase property taxes to $3.73 per $1,000, an increase of $0.95 per $1,000 over the 2017 levy.

The Ocosta replacement M&O levy is holding onto a slight approval following early results. The multi-county race is showing a 51.67% yes vote.
