Another tight budget year for ML
EMS levy will appear on November ballot
The Medical Lake City Council looked to next year’s budget in its 2013 budget workshop, although much remains the same from this year.
The city looked at its fire and emergency medical services department, specifically at three key items: retaining the points system pay for volunteer firefighters, the Emergency Medical Services levy and potential fees for the Department of Social and Health Services.
Facing renewal this year is the city’s 1 percent EMS levy. Mayor John Higgins said homeowners wouldn’t see a rate increase, as the expiring levy would be renewed at the same level.
