GOODING — If you live in Gooding County, in addition to voting on city council members and a mayor, you can expect to see at least one ballot measure on Nov. 7.
Here’s a look at the measures that will be on ballots:
- Gooding: You’ll be asked to mark “in favor” or “against” for a city advisory vote — basically, a ballot measure designed to seek your opinion.
The question is whether the Gooding City Council should enter a resolution to include the city within the Gooding Fire District. It means fire protection services within the Gooding city limits would be provided by the fire district.
And if you’re a property owner, you’d have to pay a district property tax levy.
- Gooding: The Gooding Fire District is seeking a permanent override levy.
It would increase the district’s budget from $157,893 to $452,538 beginning in October 2018 for ongoing maintenance and operational expenses, and purchasing equipment.
- Hagerman: The Hagerman Cemetery District is seeking a permanent override levy.
It would allow the district to increase the property tax levy by $45,000 beginning in October 2018 to maintain and operate four cemeteries.
