FIRE STATION BOND:

The City of Ketchum is putting forth a $11.5 million general obligation bond to build a new fire station that would replace the current station that has been housed in a former car dealership in 1979. Property owners would pay for the bond via a temporary increase in taxes that is expected to be $20.52 per year per $100,000 of property value based on a 25-year repayment at 3.15 percent.

The station would be built on vacant city land next to the Northwood Place residential development on Saddle Road.
