Lewis County Fire
District 5 is a junior taxing district. The Fire
Commissioners adopt a budget annually to serve the
District Fire Safety and EMS needs. Currently tax
payers are assessed .71 cents per thousand for real
property. Budget and financial expenditures are
reviewed every month during regularly scheduled Dist 5
Commissioner Meetings. Special budget workshops are
held to plan for the next year and review actual tax
revenues for the current year. The public is
encouraged to attend Commissioner and Budget Workshops
to better understand how and where tax money is spent.
