West Richland residents will be voting for the second time on an EMS tax that would fund ambulance transport services. Currently Benton Fire District 4 does run any ambulances, when they respond to an emergency where an ambulance is needed they have to call an ambulance from Richland Fire Department of Fire District 2 in Benton City. The first time the levy went to vote it was paired with a $3 million bond and did not receive the 60% needed to pass. This time through the levy is by itself and would cost residents about $0.50 per $1,000 of assessed value. The levy will be put to vote April 27.
