Lake Shastina votes Yes on Measure J

February 5

This Election Day, 1,443 Lake Shastina voters cast their ballots, and Measure J passed with 70.55% of the Yes vote.

Measure J proposed an $40 annual increase for both improved and unimproved parcels in Lake Shastina, resulting in $80 annually for improved parcels and $65 for unimproved parcels. With the yes vote, this is the first increase in 29 years. This funding will allow for LSFD to purchase more modern equipment for our volunteers and for the community.

Chief Pappas has published a 10 year plan detailing where the funds will be used.

Phase 1 (0-5 years):

  • Replacement of broken SCBA Air Packs ($178,000)
  • Metal garage storage to fit and store all engines ($185,000)
  • Purchase of a rescue vehicle to respond to medical calls ($85,000)

Phase 2 (5-10 years):

  • Purchase of a Type 1 engine to respond to structure fire calls ($200,000)

Phase 3 (10+ years):

  • Purchase of a Type 3 engine to respond to wildland fire calls ($350,000)
