WENATCHEE — A levy that would fund new fire trucks and equipment for Chelan County Fire District 1 is headed for the ballot in August.

Fire district commissioners on Wednesday agreed with a recommendation from a citizens advisory committee that a levy is the best way to go, said Fire Chief Mike Burnett. It would cost property owners less than the 25 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation that residents pay now for a bond that is set to expire at the end of 2014.
