Three board members of the Franklin County Fire District 3 have voted unanimously to put an emergency services tax levy increase on the November ballot.

They held a meeting this evening to get public input on the possible 32-cent tax increase for every $1,000 of home value that would pay for ambulances, medical supplies and training.

District 3 Fire Chief Les Litzenberger says EMS funds are currently coming out of the fire budget and without more money, the district is unsure of how they will provide EMS services.
