Medic One: A Local Measure to vote on in the Primary Election August 3, 2021

If approved by voters, Proposition No. 1 would authorize Thurston County to increase the County’s regular property tax levy for Medic One emergency medical
care and services in 2022 from the current amount of $0.289 to $0.35 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. This restores the increase approved by voters in 1999 and represents an incremental increase of approximately $0.06 per $1,000 of assessed value over the 2021 levy rate. 

The Voter's Pamphlet for Thurston County has more information and you can also watch this video for more detailed information.
