Voters in various pockets of the county weighed in on tax measures and community services district boards in the Nov. 5 election, with varying results.
Clio residents overwhelmingly approved a $95.24 annual tax to pay the Graeagle Fire Protection District for fire protection and basic life support services.
The measure required two-thirds of the vote to pass and received 82.93 percent.
Similarly, the Peninsula Fire Protection District required two-thirds to pass its special tax of $280 per unimproved parcel and $295 per improved parcel, but fell short with 63.08 percent of the vote. The final tally was 258 yes votes to 151 no votes.
The morning after the election, County Clerk-Recorder Kathy Williams said the proponents of the Peninsula Fire tax are already planning to conduct a new election in the spring.
The Plumas Eureka Community Services District voters retained the three incumbents on the ballot, electing James Walker, Frank Shepard and Richard Machado.
The West Almanor Community Services District elected Michael Wilhoit, Dick Horn and Philip Springfield, failing to retain incumbents John Fricke and John Gonzales.
