A typographic error has recently come to our attention in the ballot label for Measure T. The ballot label, in part, currently reads that the tax up for a vote funds “wildlife” protection. The measure should have referred to “wildfire protection.”
The full, corrected text of the ballot label should be:
“To reduce the risk of wildfire/improve wildfire prevention, including removing dry brush, dead trees, fuels and fire hazards; improving emergency evacuation systems, routes and procedures; supporting defensible space around homes, neighborhoods and critical infrastructure, providing more green waste disposal options; shall the Truckee Fire Protection District measure levying $179 per parcel for eight years be adopted, providing $3,700,000 annually in locally-controlled funding for wildfire protection, with independent audits, exemptions for low-income residents, and citizen oversight?”
We apologize for the error and any confusion that may have resulted.
